Hedges Red Mountain Red Wine 2016
It’s hard to believe that this classic-tasting Red Mountain blend came from such a hot year. This wine exudes a lot of dark plum, black cherry, lush cocoa, black licorice, earth, and a touch of cassis. There is quite a bit of that unique Red Mountain spice mix of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and ginger. 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 combinationyou’ll find yourself sipping on this for hours; which is never a bad thing.
