Tasting Notes

Wine Tasting Notes

Winemaker : Sarah Hedges
Three Word Taste Summary : toasty , smoked , blackberry
Storage Instructions : Ready to drink now, this wine has the structure to age for 3 to 7 more years.
Tasting Notes
Dark, garnet color. Aromas of dark toast, smoke, clove, peppermint, wild blackberry and plum, with just a touch of dark cocoa powder. The palate is pleasantly rustic, but with a full mid-palate and a lingering dark cherry finish with just a touch of minerality. Fruit was predominately sourced from The Sagemoor Farms Vineyard in the Columbia Valley AVA. The must was pumped over for 8 days and pressed to tank, where it underwent malo-lactic fermentation. The wine was fermented to dryness on 100 % American Oak and aged on 100% French oak. It was 100% barrel aged for 8 months. Ready to drink now, this wine has the structure to age for 5 to 10 more years .
Vintage Notes
2014 was warm early and stayed warm until harvest, the hottest since 1998. Ripe and the Brix that go with it were no problem this vintage and it was very fast, short growing season. Heat began early and remained constant which helped plants and fruit clusters acclimate to the extreme heat. With nights still cooling berry shrivel and raisining was nonexistent. With little to no rainfall throughout the year mildew problems were of no concern. One problem for wine makers was the early ripening of all varieties which made it challenging for harvesting grapes at their optimum. However, our long term relationships with our growers and vigilant testing (and the earlier than usual picking that went with it), helped us to pick grapes at their optimum.

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."
