Hahn Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 (PB)

This previously reviewed wine is fruity and a tad mentholated and brimming with berries right out of the gate. In the mouth it is brimming with fruit which is very ripe and brilliantly intense. It is the wonderful balance of the tannins that are plush and the flavors which are pronounced that makes this border on distinguished. With a little breathing licorice and raisins are strong in a fruit forward new world style. This is an awesome wine for $10 and I think this was a previous Wall Street Journal pick. No wonder. It is great with steak and my wife didn’t seem to mind it with salmon—not your normal paring but then if the pairing is off, it’s the food that was wrong not the wine! Consistent notes from last review. Now raise a glass!
