Blend of 43% Merlot 23% Cabernet Sauvignon 17% Syrah 4% Cabernet Franc 7% Malbec 3% Petit Verdot 1% Souzao 1% Touriga 1% Tinta Cao

Tasting Notes: Cassis, blackberry, dark chocolate, leather, coffee, with a hint of cloves and toasted hazelnuts. Full and rounded palate with bright, intense fruit and a lush cocoa, spicy finish. This wine has a classic Hedges style with a modern touch, very enjoyable now and will age for years to come.

Production Notes: Grapes are from Red Mountain AVA vineyards within a 2 mile radius of the winery: Hedges, Bel’ Villa, Les Gosses Magdalena and Jolet. The wine was destemmed and partially crushed into stainless steel fermenters where it was pumped over twice daily until desired tannin extraction was achieved. It was then pressed to barrels where it underwent malo-lactic fermentation, then racked off lees and 100% barrel aged for 21 months in 44% new oak, American (61%) and French oak (39%).

Red Mountain Appellation -this wine, like other Red Mountain wines, is best now with food, but will age well, probably peaking in 5-10 more years.

Rated Gold in the 2020 Sunset wine awards. Given 93 points by James Suckling & 90 points by Jeb Dunnuck
