2013 Hedges Family Estate Red Mountain Blend
Oh what fun this gem is! The 2013 Hedges Family Estate Red Mountain Blend is made up of a myriad of popular wines. Very dark in the glass all the way to the edge and the well balanced acidity provides for a tart beginning to a semi-sweet, solid finish on this medium bodied, well rounded wine. A lot of dark fruits are popping through here and they are balanced with the herbs and leathery goodness that come through on the nose and in the mouth. This wine would pair extremely well with a French Onion Soup or a beautiful bone-in ribeye. This has been in bottle for nearly 4 years and you could drink this in 5 years and be just as satisfied, if not more. The makeup on this wine is Cabernet Sauvignon (59%), Merlot (28%), Cabernet Franc (5%), Malbec (4%), Petite Verdot (2%) and Syrah (2%). Did I mention that I love the color?
