CMS Red Hedges
Garnet-purple in color. Nose of sweet vanilla toast with creamy raspberry, black cherry, blackberry, and dried blueberry fruit, along with just a hint of herbs, clove spice, and earthiness. Black cherry and blackberry fruit continue on palate with the sweet vanilla toast rounding out mid-palate. The finish is long with just enough acid and tannin to let one know this is a bit more serious and longer-lived wine.

In the Red Mountain region of Washington State, Hedges Family Estate has concentrated their efforts on Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and the concept of terrior, since their first vinatage in 1987.
Hedges Family Estate on Red Mountain has 80 acres of beautiful hillside vineyards. The winery has historically focused on only a few wines and limited grape varieties, with each wine a blend that reflects the natural relationship between topography, soil, microclimate, and those specific varietals.
CMS Red is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 4% Syrah. Grapes making this wine came from the Horse Heaven Hills vineyard of Destiny Ridge, the Columbia Valley vineyards of Bacchus, Weinbau, Wooded Island, and Sagemoor (all part of Sagemoor Farms). Grapes were also sourced from C & M, Goose Ridge, and the Red Mountain Vineyards. The wine was age in about 60% French oak, and 40% American oak with lots stored for up to ten months in barrel.
