HEDGES FAMILY 'CMS' RED BLEND, WASHINGTON 2019
Varietals: 61% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 9% Syrah
Region: Columbia Valley, Washington
What's So Special: Hedges Cellars transitioned to Hedges Family Estate, and farming practices became more focused towards being organic, vegan, and some of their vineyards are being certified Demeter. Their future direction is clear: they will continue to work as a family to unite farming, winemaking, and the promotion of their wines and the Red Mountain AVA.
Tastes Like: Black cherry, raspberry, warm mulling spices with a bit of cocoa, vanilla and anise. The palate is very soft up front, has a nice creamy center and while it does pack a slight punch, it lingers into a finessed finish. Flavors of chocolate, sarsaparilla, raspberry candy, clove and cinnamon, this wine is delicious, well rounded and sure to be a crowd pleaser.
