2017 Hedges Family Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain
Dark red garnet color. Complex aromatics of intense black
fruits, with toast, mixed spice, cedar, tar, a touch of graphite and a hint of vanilla. Lush, yet structured character on the palate. This wine has a long finish, just when you think it’s gone a little surprise flavor
and bite shows up at the end. A pleasantly serious Cabernet Sauvignon that reveals itself slowly with each sip.
Fruit was sourced Hedges (23%), Bel’Villa (55%), Jolet (10%) and Magdalena (10%) and Les Gosses
(2%) vineyards. Fruit was harvested between 9/13 and 10/19. This wine was cold soaked overnight then inoculated with yeast, fermented for 7-10 days on skins while being pumped over twice daily before pressing to barrels, where it underwent malo-lactic fermenation. It was 100% barrel aged for 23 months in 49%
