Hedges CMS Red 2018
The Hedges CMS Red–that’s Cabernet-Merlot-Syrah–is a fun and affordable introduction to the more unusual red blends of Washington State. The fruit–48% Merlot, 40% Cab and 12% Syrah–comes from vineyards grown througout the Columbia Valley’s diverse AVAs, including the Horse Heaven Hills, Columbia Valley’s Wahluke Slope and Red Mountain. Aged in a combination of French and American oak, with some lots spending as little as five weeks, others up to ten months in barrel, the CMS is their best effort to date. We love the mix of dark berry, black cherry, and black plum aromas and flavors, with nicely balanced accents of creamy vanilla, chocolate and sweet baking spices. It’s food-friendly, open-knit and ready to drink, with a burst of juicy acidity at the finish.
