- Hedges Cms Red 2010 Product #26172 (In Stock)
We have fallen in love with the classic, honest wines from Hedges Family Estate! This family-owned Washington state winery has its roots in Old-World winemaking, eschews scores, and is all about showcasing the potential of the terroir in Washington. Devoid of flash, pretention, or inflated prices, this winery represents the kind of honest winemaking and independent spirit that we love to support. It doesn't hurt that the wine's delicious!
CMS is a blend of Cabernet and Merlot with a dash of Syrah. You'll find plenty of dark fruit, earth, and baking spices on the nose. On the palate the fruit flavors are lush and satisfying, but the structure and juicy acidity keeps it all in balance. Fabulous for a grilled steak or a big, juicy burger!
- Hedges Syrah DLD Red Mountain 2010 Product #26384 (In Stock)
A terrific Washington Syrah that marries New World fruit with Old World class. Tom Hedges and Anne-Marie Liégeois met and married in her native Champagne before moving back to Tom's home in Washington and starting their winery in 1986. This wine, from the top Red Mountain AVA, is 100% Syrah aged for 14 months in 65% new oak and the rest used barrels, including French, American, and Hungarian wood. It's intensely perfumed and big in the mouth with notes of dried herb, bacon, cigar, black licorice, and black fruit. Notes of smoke, anise, white pepper and sage emerge on the long, powerful, finish. It should develop well for another decade or so.
