Hedges Red Mountain Blend 2011

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Concentrated and slightly earthy, this has more density and grip (as it should) than the C.M.S. red, but a similar profile (51% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 4% Syrah.) Black cherry and plum fruits are wrapped in light smoke and mocha flavors. The fruit-driven core gently leads into soft, silky tannins that leave an impression of black olive at the end of a lingering finish.

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.

Formerly the popular Three Vineyards bottling, this has been re-named, but remains the same friendly Merlot-dominated Bordeaux blend, with just a bit of Syrah adding spice. Smooth and silky in the mouth, it mixes red and blue fruits, with a ripe, round midpalate and light chocolate and toasted nuts to finish.

Winemaker Notes - Dark purple in color with aromas of juicy ripe fruit of cherry, blackberry and cassis combined with clove and cocoa. The palate is concentrated with black cherry, cranberry, toast, licorice with hints of smoke, earth and caramel. This wine is wonderful to drink now but will continue to give pleasure for another 10-15 years later.
