External Reviews for Hahn Estates Merlot
One of the most exciting domestic Merlots we've had all year! Made by the award-winning winemakers from Smith & Hook, this Merlot is downright sinful. Lush and juicy, tempered by a touch of spice on the finish. What a lovely wine!
Doesn't have quite the concentration of many more expensive Merlots, but fills a nice niche in an affordable red wine that's full-bodied, dry and elegant. Offers pleasant flavors of cherries, red currants, cola and oak.
Smells and tastes a little weedy, with green, stalky notes, but saved from disgrace by the pretty blackberry flavors and rich texture. Dry, with firm but easy tannins and good acids, this is a nice everyday sipper at a fair price.
The rooster on the label (hahn means rooster in German) heralds the intense cherry and buttery smoothness of this Monterey merlot. Classic silkiness from a winery that continues to master the art of good wine-making.
Marked by ripe cherry and dark plum fruit, the wine is balanced with a fairly long finish. There is 20% Cabernet Franc blended in, which gives it a spicy twist lacking in many Merlots.
