Wine Find: 2008 Hahn SLH Estate Pinot Gris

March 17, 2010|By Michael Dresser | Baltimore Sun reporter

From: Santa Lucia Highlands, Calif.
Price: $20
Serve with: Salmon with cream sauce

This is hardly a delicate, crystalline white wine. It's big, robust, rounded and creamy in texture. The alcohol level is high for a white at 14.2 percent, but it's barely detectable behind the generous flavors of pear, tropical fruit, spices and honey. This is one of those dry wines that gives an impression of sweetness with its bold fruitiness. Not for casual sipping, it needs to be paired with food.
