K&L Notes

The 2011 Hedges Red Mountain Red Blend, this winery's flagship wine, looks like a Bordeaux style blend on the surface, but another look reveals a small amount of Syrah added to the blend of Cab, Merlot, Cab Franc and Malbec. All of the fruit comes from Washington's Red Mountain AVA, representing all of the vineyards Hedges farms, and is aged for 10 months in a combination of French, American and Hungarian oak, half new half neutral. Plenty of structure and acidity to support the elegant black and red fruit and well-integrated spice.

    Hailing from the Red Mountain AVA, the wines made in this region effortlessly show both ripeness and acidity in tantamount. On the nose, aromas of ripe blackberry, plum black currants, and gravel are present. On the palate, the wine is brighter than one would typically assume. Elevated acidity, with flavors of berry medley and tobacco. Lingering tannins as well. A great pick for parties, very easy to buy a case at this price!

    The Red Mountain AVA is renowned for its uncommonly brilliant Bordeaux style reds, beautifully cascading blends from a panoply of grapes than can often include a smattering of Syrah in the mix. This 2011 version pours forth spicy black fruit aromas displaying smooth, mouthwatering flavors of dark cherry, plum and pipe tobacco and cassis, with plenty of structure and tannin to age for a few more years. Quite remarkable, and always a great value from this famed estate.
