Hedges Red Mountain 2013

SKU 01280


Aromas of blackberry jam, dried herbs, sweet clove spice, earthy dark cocoa powder and a touch of toasted vanilla bean. In the mouth this wine is full and leathery, slightly sweet and tart with noticeable tannins that beg for this wine to be paired with a delicious meal. The flavors are dark berry fruit, toast, clove spice and a hint of vanilla and mocha on the long and lingering finish. Cellaring: This wine, like other Red Mountain wines, is best now with food, but will age well, probably peaking in 15-25 more years.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Syrah. The aromas seem a bit off, with notes of dried cherry, oregano, anise and medicine cabinet. The palate has a pleasing sense of restraint and elegance, with gamy notes on the finish.
