Hahn Central Coast 2009 (GSM), $12.99-$19.99, 90 points, appeals to one's senses straight from the get-go with colors of bright purple, red, and flashes of orange.
Continuing this beguilement, an earthy and floral nose with hints of leather and sweet red cherry beckon you closer.
However, the proof is in the pudding, and this smooth medium bodied treat, filled with balanced acidity and tannin is not shorting anyone, but with flavors of tart lingonberry and sweet red cherry, trailing deep into a long finish with subtle hints of spice and a warm touch (14.3% alcohol), make for a rewarding accompaniment to almost any dinner-fare, or just to sip by the fireplace.
