    You'll find aromas of violet, iris, red berry and baking spice on this savory blend of 90% Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. The vibrant palate doles out wild cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and a hint of tobacco alongside polished tannins and bright acidity.
    SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2015
    A firm yet juicy red, displaying black cherry and blackberry flavors. The tannins are assertive, so give this air or short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2019. 14,800 cases imported.

    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Nov 2014
    This large winery in Mendoza, Argentina makes numerous wines under the Maipe, Chakana and Cueva de las Manos labels. Almost all of them represent good values. The more expensive cuvées include the 2013 Chakana Malbec Estate, a 100% Malbec from the finest vineyards. Aged in both new and one-year-old French oak for 18 months, it reveals a deep plum/ruby/purple color, sweet blackberry and white chocolate notes intermixed with cassis and licorice, medium body, a velvety texture and a lush personality. Drink it over the next 2–3 years.

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#45851

    WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - April 1, 2018
    A bright, citrusy Sancerre, this wine touches on notes of bitter pith and grass, but the overall impression is lemony, zingy, clean and fresh. It’s a bold young sauvignon to pour with roast fish.

    Hahn SLH Pinot Noir

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#26570

    WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 10/1/2017
    This widely available and well-priced appellation blend shows dark aromas of black raspberry, elderberry, wet slate and crushed gravel on the nose. The wine makes a soft entry on the palate, where mulberry meets with Earl Grey tea and a pinch of anise.
    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Sep 2017
    The 2015 Pinot Noir Hahn SLH has a medium ruby-purple color and pronounced nose of baked black cherries, warm plums and raspberry preserves plus suggestions of spice box, violets and dried Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it gives a great concentration of red and black fruit preserves with a firm backbone of chewy tannins and an herbal lift to the finish.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2017
    A graceful style that’s medium-weight, with spicy, floral flavors of wilted rose and raspberry. Well-focused and persistent, maintaining its graceful balance and ending clean, with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2022. 15,941 cases made.
    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2017
    Vivid red. Fresh black raspberry, cherry and candied rose scents are complemented by hints of star anise and cola. Juicy and focused in the mouth, offering zesty dark berry and spicecake flavors that deepen as the wine stretches out. In a fruity, forward style, delivering solid closing punch; smooth tannins add gentle grip.
