Tasting notes

Dark deep color. Intense, dark, almost black fruit with a mint/menthol background along with toasty, spicey oak and hints of vanilla, cocoa and black cherry cola. A stunning aroma! The mouthfeel is full and rich with a great balance of dark fruit and toasty, spicy oak flavors. Nice acid, firm structure and a long finish make this a classic example of Red Mountain wine. Worth twice the price.

Production notes

Grapes are from the Red Mountain Appellation vineyards of Hedges Estate, Bel’ Villa and Red Mountain. All of this wine was aged for 17 months in barrels, approximately 20% of which were new French oak and 10% new American Oak.

Other notes

Harvest Notes: Fairly consistent temperatures during bloom and set led to a nice, even set. A typically warm summer led into a late August/early September ripening period of several days that were hot and dry followed by several cool days, causing sugar levels to spike up then drop to more “normal” levels. This pattern repeated itself, then changed to more typical extended fall ripening conditions of warm days and cool nights in later September. Our philosophy of picking at optimum flavor maturity caused us to ignore the higher brix early on and our patience was rewarded with later development of wonderfully concentrated ripe flavors that carried over into our wines. The wines tend to have higher alcohol but balanced acid and the Red Mountain terroir of the three vineyards our grapes come from provide intensity and complexity in flavor and aroma. Another great vintage for those patient enough to let the grapes achieve optimum maturity.
