Food Pairings for Hahn Estates Meritage
In a very competitive price point, this wine has a lot of stiff competition; however, if you can find it in the low end cost-wise (got it for $12.99), it is a very good value. It is a smooth, fruity, dry wine with a nice finish. Nothing awe inspiring, but nothing obtrusive. It's the proverbial "nice" wine for a bordeaux style blend.
External Reviews for Hahn Estates Meritage
A pretty good blend of all five Bordeaux grapes, dominated by Merlot, and marked by effusively fruity aromas and flavors. The fruit is conjoined with well-toasted oak that adds caramel and smoky, spicy notes. Very satisfying, with enough tannins to warrant a few years of aging.
Raspberry, cinnamon and sweet, subtle oak on the nose. Bright cherry fruit up front tops a cascade of plum, blackberry, cassis, and spice layers in the mouth. Dusty tannins appear at the back end and are supported with nice acidity to keep the wine structured and focused long into the finish.
Resembling a cru Saint-Emilion, this California red blends Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec to its Merlot base, creating a wine that is both rich and smooth. The smooth, velvety tannins enhance the juicy fruit flavors, gently tapering off as a thread of acidity takes over and finishes with a bright cherry note.
A zesty little red, with black cherry and graphite aromas and appealing, sleek plum, spice and espresso flavors. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2015.
This is easily Hahnrsquo;s best red Bordeaux-style wines. Itrsquo;s rich in ripe, attractive blackberry, cherry and cassis fruit, with complex, smooth tannins, and is dry. The main difference between it and, say, a Napa bottling is acidity, which this wine has plenty of.
Scents of cocoa powder show off the primary oak effect on the winersquo;s simple flavors of blueberry and blackberry. Itrsquo;s a juicy red for a steak.
Blackberry and blueberry with hints of cedar spice on the nose, while flavors of bramble fruit, cherry, vanilla, and dried herbs please the palate. Dark and seductive in the glass, this classic Bordeaux-style blend manages to be approachable yet complex. Pronounced blackberry and blueberry on the nose mingle with cedar spice and a hint of wood, while notes of bramble fruit, cherry, vanilla and dried herbs please the palate. This wine consists primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon, with generous portions of Malbec and Petite Verdot to add depth to the tannic profile and color, and to enhance midpalate richness. Cabernet Franc and Merlot are also in the blend. The multidimensional character of this blend is well-suited for rich and robust foods. Try it with rosemary lamb chops with Swiss chard or pizza with Italian sausage. Or serve with a simple appetizer such as fig and blue cheese crostini.
