Hahn 2014 GSM

Hahn 2014 GSM Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre Central Coast: Here’s an everyday sipper and great value if you long for a Rhône blend but wish to drink a wine from California. Hahn, based in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County, has put together this blueberry-bursting blend of Grenache (65 percent), Syrah (31 percent), and Mourvèdre (4 percent). It’s a perfect accompaniment for cold nights and warm foods — think lamb shanks or pork chops — especially at a SRP of $14.

The wine is a bit young, so don’t hesitate to decant (even at its bargain price) or open it an hour before you hope to drink it. Then enjoy its bright fruit and appealing notes of violets, clove, and cardamom.
