Tasting Notes

Wine Tasting Notes

Winemaker : Pete Hedges
Three Word Taste Summary : blackberry , plum , black cherry
Food Pairings : Flank steak, grilled vegetables, chocolate, blue cheese, pizza
Tasting Notes
Dark in color; this wine has dark, concentrated fruits of blackberry, plum, black cherry, and an intriguing background of ripe melon. The fruit is seamlessly integrated with the oak aromas of toast, cinnamon/clove spice, cola, licorice, caramel and pepper highlights. Dark fruit flavors, medium-plus body, wonderfully spicy, cola and toasty oak notes gives plenty of structure without being gripping. Nice acid makes this a wine that is pleasant to drink now, but should age gracefully for 5 - 10 years.
Vintage Notes
2006 was one of the best vintages in the last decade and the wines from Hedges Family Estate reflect this with some of the best wines made to date. Mostly even temperatures and little wind and rain during bloom made for nice set. The summer was hot, but not too hot, and typical fall ripening conditions of warm days (80-85 degrees Fahrenheit) and cool nights (45-50 degrees Fahrenheit) began in mid-September and continued through October. Our philosophy of picking at optimum flavor maturity made us pick warmer site fruit as early as the third week of September and cooler site fruit the last week of October.

About the Winery

Brand Story

With their 27th vintage now in barrel, Tom and Anne-Marie Hedges can look back at their pioneering efforts to help establish the modern Washington wine industry, and specifically, the renowned Red Mountain AVA. The Hedges scraped together enough money to purchase a 50-acre parcel on the dusty southwest slope of Red Mountain, a barely known growing region at the time. More than two decades later, their now 125 acres of Red Mountain vineyard lies at the heart of the Hedges family’s wines. Over 10 years ago, the second generation of Hedges joined the winery--a pleasant surprise for their parents, who were sure the grueling summer work in the vineyard as teenagers would have deterred their son, Christophe (now the General Director) and daughter, Sarah (now the winemaker).
Farmer first, and winemaker second, Sarah Hedges Goedhart believes there is nothing more important than expressing the characteristics of specific vineyards, of capturing terroir. Her mother, Anne-Marie, grew up in Champagne, France, and is no doubt the messenger of these beliefs, bringing the philosophies of the old world to her home in eastern Washington State.
Expect a fine sense of subtlety and finesse and an extraordinary achievement of balance in Sarah’s wines, as she strives for food-friendly wines harvested at reasonable ripeness and aged using conservative oak management. For more than a decade, the Hedges have chosen not to have their wines scored, as they believe this would hinder their pursuit of making wines of soul and truth.
"Our wine is history, family, employees, and a reflection of the entire culture of the estate."
