"Soft and easygoing, with small-scale strawberry and spice flavors. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2023. 26,000 cases made. –TF " (WS)

"GOOD VALUE, Fully ripe berries abound in this effusively fruity Rhônish blend, and, while it would be hard to argue that it is a complex or especially elegant wine, we have no complaints about its juicy and forthright appeals. It is fairly full and somewhat plump on the palate, and, if not soft or lacking in spine, it is no more than minimally tannic. It may not demand immediate drinking, but it promises few rewards with age, and it is ready to enjoy without delay. Reviewed: March 2017" (CG)

Winery Notes:
Our Hahn GSM takes its inspiration from the Rhone Valley of southern France where Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre are some of the most popular grape types grown. Each of the three grape types blended into this wine adds distinctive aromas and flavors. Grenache contributes raspberry, strawberry and cherry flavors, while Syrah lends color, tannins and hints of blueberry and black pepper. The Mourvèdre adds richness to the mid-palate and lengthens the dry finish.

For the aromas and flavors we desire, we select the fruit for this wine from the Arroyo Seco, Santa Lucia Highlands and Paso Robles regions of the Central Coast. After harvest, we age this wine in 40% new oak. The final blend is 60% Grenache, 37% Syrah and 3% Mourvèdre.
