SERIOUS, DRY REDS

Full-bodied New World reds - CMS, Hedges Family Estate. Colombia Valley, Washington State, USA

2014 CMS, Hedges Family. Columbia Valley, Washington State

Bin: 483
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: This is a blend from various regions within Washington State, which (just to check everyone knows!) is north of Oregon on the west coast.
Grape Variety: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 16% Syrah; all matured in oak (60% French, 40% American) for 10 months.
Producer: From the website of their agent:
Hedges is the leading winery in the Red Mountain AVA, perhaps Washington State's most prestigious appellation and an area that was awarded AVA status in 2001 thanks largely to the tireless efforts of the Hedges family. Their hard work was most certainly justified - this steep slope was formed (like much of the state's viticultural areas) by millions of years of glacial floods and the soil is a mix of clay, loess and rocky granite which has proved perfect for the cultivation of red varieties.
Since their first vintage in 1987, the family have become known for producing wines that are structured, elegant and harmonious, with the capacity to age superbly. This stylistic focus is due, in part, to the French influence exerted by founder Tom Hedges' Champenoise wife Anne-Marie - their children Sarah and Christophe, who run the estate today, expound a philosophy of terroir and balance that is more typical of the old world than the new.
Old Bridge Rating: Really successful example of what Washington State can do best - a balance between the ripeness of a California red blend and the backbone of something more classically European.
