2019 Hahn Winery Cabernet Sauvignon, California, USA (750ml)
The extraction of this wine is apparent at the outset. The wine displays a color reminiscent of what the Burmese cal ka-la-ngoh or -crying-Indian- ruby, characterized by an almost black color with crimson highlights. There is a fine balance on the nose of black cherry, anise, olive, and cedar. Rich, ripe and sweet flavors of dark fruits, raspberry, and hard candies that finish with a whiff of tobacco. The tannins have a fine but firm grip and are suspended by the acid core that stays in the mouth through the finish. Since I now live in an Atkin's-friendly household, I get to try my wines with a variety of wonderful meats. Try a rack of lamb with a sundried cherry sauce or perhaps medellions with cranberry dijon chutney.
