2001 Hahn Estates Merlot, Monterey ($12).

WINE OF THE WEEK

April 09, 2003|By Michael Dresser

2001 Hahn Estates Merlot, Monterey ($12). This plump, chewy merlot exhibits a soft texture but has plenty of structure underneath. Its rich flavors of blackberry, chocolate and herbs give it more of a resemblance to syrah than to cabernet sauvignon. This merlot, which compares well with Napa Valley counterparts that sell for $20 and up, would pair well with roast chicken or red meat.
