Hahn Winery Santa Lucia Highlands 2009 Chardonnay, $9.34-$13.99, 88 points, was golden in color, the aroma a toasty almond, vanilla, and a hint of tomato.
The nose rode on a medium bodied mouth-feel with good acidity and translated well onto the palate with the aroma flavors, and additionally, there were hints of white grape and butter.
The wine finished with the diminished flavors and added a hint of ginger.
Hahn continues to prove that it is an excellent winery in the "everyday" wine category, but not having tasted Hahn's Smith and Hook Cabernets or their Lucienne Pinot Noir wines, I'll have to wait to taste these higher-end wines before judging whether that consistency carries throughout their wines.
