Hedges Cellars Red Mountain Estate 2013

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is a deep inky indigo at the center with bright ruby along the edges. The nose presents aromas of leather, oak, blackberry and mint, somewhat of an old school Bordeaux vibe. The taste is much less intimidating than the nose might suggest, with a rush of cherry cola, licorice and dried herbs that transition nicely to some earthy notes of wild game and smoke midpalate. The finish is somewhat subdued but very dry. See the full review on my blog here: http://allaloneonaplanetfullofpeople.blogspot.com/2016/11/2012-hedges-family-estate-red-mountain.html

Hedges Family Estate:
We used inspiration and determination to create a distinctive place to grow the grapes that We hoped would be well-suited to the terroir. Building a French chateau was a natural way to bring our Old World family's heritage to Eastern Washington.

For those of you that are impressed with the wines of Bordeaux, take a sip of this Washington State red blend that easily compares. Fresh tobacco and dark berries on the nose and palate. Solid tannins give this wine a backbone that will aid in cellaring. Approachable today but can easily be held a few years. Based on Cab and Merlot with a touch of Syrah.
