Hedges CMS Red 2016
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
Such a fun mix of strawberry and raspberry fruit, cocoa, earthy spices and a bit of red licorice. There are hints of dried sage, cocoa nibs, and some pomegranate on the finish. The palate shines with bright acidity followed by a full and rich mid-palate, showing flavors of red fruits and rich, earthy spices. A tinge of vanilla balances out the rustic finish. This a sip and enjoy wine. It's interesting without being complicated and is a perfect complement to a variety of foods and situations.
The value-priced 2016 CMS Red checks in as a blend of 58% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Syrah. It has good complexity in its red and black fruits, dried flowers, and menthol aromas, is medium-bodied, nicely balanced, and silky, with a forward yet undeniably delicious style. Drink it any time over the coming 4-6 years.
