Spiced plum, sandalwood, dried herbs, tobacco, and leather notes all emerge from the 2019 Red Mountain, a round, supple, nicely balanced, complex Red Mountain release. I like its balance, it has tons of character, and should keep for a solid decade. The blend is 43% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Syrah, 4% Cabernet Franc, 7% Malbec, and the rest a mix of other varieties. Best After 2022

Blend:
36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 13% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot

Vineyard Percent:
55% Bel Villa, 17% Hedges, 20% Jolet, 6% Les Gosses and 2% Magdalena

Winemaker:
Sarah Hedges Goedhart

Titratable Acid: 5.4 Grams/liter

Tasting Notes: Black fruits, dark chocolate, vanilla, cumin, cedar dust, butterscotch and dried herbs. Lush chocolate
custard with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger and licorice. Full, rich, lush with gorgeous fruit and spice notes. Long
silky finish with flavors of blackberry, black pepper and touch of vanilla. This wine has a classic Hedges style with a
modern touch, very enjoyable now and will age for years to come.

Cellaring: This wine, like other Red Mountain wines, is best now with food, but will age well. 10+ years

Production: 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 18 months in 33% new
oak, American (63%) and French oak (37%).

About Hedges
The history of Hedges Family Estate begins in June of 1976, with the marriage of Tom Hedges and Anne-Marie Liégeois in a 12th century church in Champagne, France. The convergence of separate cultural upbringings provides a strong backdrop for creating a modern day, but traditionally inspired wine estate.

Ten years after their wedding, an opportunity to become entrepreneurs seemed like a positive move to economic independence, contrasting from the previous decade of working for large multinational agricultural firms. In 1986, this unique opportunity presented itself; Tom and Anne-Marie created an export company called American Wine Trade, Inc., based out of Kirkland, Washington State; they began selling wine to foreign importers. As the company grew, it began to source Washington wines for a larger clientele leading to the establishment of a negociant-inspired wine called Hedges Cellars.

Three hours south east of Seattle an opportunity presented itself in a developing wine region called Red Mountain. Tom and Anne-Marie, as new owners, felt its potential for greatness. At this location, American Wine Trade transformed itself from negociant and wine trader to a wine estate. Today, this biodynimacally-farmed Red Mountain property continues to be the foundation of the Hedges family.

Authentic wine estates must live on for centuries to achieve acceptance amongst the world great properties. The second generation has begun to make its mark at Hedges Family Estate. Tom and Anne-Marie's children, Christophe and Sarah, are now involved in the business, and each has a special set of skills for understanding the terroir. The entire Hedges company believes place of origin is the keystone of authenticity, and their goal is to treat their wines with reverence and let the Red Mountain terroir speak for itself.
