Food Pairings for Hahn Estates Meritage
Very jammy fruit, almost tastes like a sweet wine - not necessarily unpleasant but atypical. Oak noticable, tannins firm, short finish.
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.
Its 14.5% and you can smell it on the nose. The nose is a little hot, and has some interesting notes of tar and treacle and black cherries. Its a very rich, sweet fruity wine (not sugary, just sweet fruits). Its clearly a California cab - good minerality and eucalyptus. Not very tannic, easy drinking and this was just the 2006. I like it, but am fully aware that many people find Monterrey wines too sweet - its not sugar, but high alcohol and high glycerin which gives it that "sweet" mouthfilling flavor

Tried side by side with the Hahn 2005 Meritage. Preferred the 2006. Nice and subtly spicy.

Rich and mellow, plummy and jammy, like a chocolate covered cherry without the excessive sweetness. Rich in color and aroma, very layered. I'm no wine expert, but I liked this a lot!
External Reviews for Hahn Estates Meritage
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.
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.
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 a very ripe wine stuffed with blackberries, cherries and cocoa, but itrsquo;s also pretty tannic, although sweet oak softens the blow. Feels lush and good, but rustic around the edges. Drink now with beef dishes.
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.
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.
