2015 Hedges Family Estate CMS Red Wine Blend
There are a few wine phrases I've said dozens (hundreds?) of times over the years. One of these phrases would be, "Good wine doesn't have to be expensive". And that proves to be true with this 2015 Hedges Family Estate CMS Red Wine Blend. Made up of a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (27%), Merlot (65%) and Syrah (8%), this wine has a very dark red color with purple center and a very nice layer of aromas like black raspberry, chocolate, dried cooking spices and a hint of pipe tobacco smoke. This wine is much brighter than anticipated and fills the mouth with ripe berries and plum flavors, blended very evenly. The chocolate and smokiness is realized on the back side of this tasting and the wine bids adieu with a memorable and strong finish.
