Hedges Family Winery

Deep diving into Washington wine month  to learn more about the local producers and regions.

Depending on the location of the vineyards the rolling high desert of Eastern Washington is an ideal environment for growing vines.  The long hot summer days can make it challenging to keep alcohol-acid balance in check.  Washington enjoys long, long summer days.  It is not difficult for grapes to achieve ripeness.

2012 Hedges Red Wine has deep plum and raspberry notes with a stony backbone and fine tannins. The grapes comprising the Bordeaux blend are sourced from a list of who’s who vineyards on Red Mountain.  The wine may be five years old, but it still has many ahead of it.  

It’s a supple wine that with a high acidity that will lend itself well to grilled dishes with big flavor.
