Our Hahn SLH GSM takes its inspiration from the Rhône Valley of Southern France where Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre are among the most famous and predominant red grape varieties. Our GSM offers the richness and depth that is common in wines from the Santa Lucia Highlands.
Notes of vanilla and cardamom follow initial scents of raspberry and cherry. Medium-bodied and beautifully balanced on the palate, flavors of red plum and integrated tannins weave together on the wine’s smooth finish.
The 2013 vintage presented ideal growing conditions throughout the Santa Lucia Highlands. Plentiful sunshine, moderate temperatures and dry weather allowed our estate grown Grenache and Syrah to develop rich flavors and elegant acidity.
Taking inspiration from traditional blends of the Southern Rhône Valley, this wine combines the unique characters of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The vibrant red fruit flavors of Grenache poised against the dark fruit and spicy, tannin intensity of Syrah form the two pillars of the wine’s profile. Mourvèdre improves and integrates the wine’s texture and ensures a harmonious mouthfeel.
