Hedges Family Estate, Red Blend Red Mountain 2015
Incredible value red blend from the Red Mountain AVA in Washington.
Aromas of herb, coffee bean, vanilla, blackberry and graphite lead to a restrained palate of well-balanced fruit and barrel flavors. The tannins give a light squeeze. It's a spot on example of the variety.
The palate is rich, lush, and full yet not overdone. It shows restraint but also has a power to it that is unmistakably terroir-driven. The flavors of chocolate, dark fruits, spice and a touch of vanilla a such a good combination you’ll find yourself sipping on this for hours; which is never a bad thing.
Blend: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 14% Syrah, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Touriga Nacional, 1% Tinta Cao, and 1% Souzao.
