Tasting notes

Dark, almost black, color. The aroma is closed at first, but opens up after time in the glass. Dark cassis fruit aroma dominates with slight toasted oak notes and hints of vanilla, mint and spice aromas.  The mouthfeel is rich, full and structured with dark fruit and toasty, spicey oak flavors on the long finish. This is classic Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from Hedges!

Production notes

Grapes are from Bel’ Villa Vineyard North Block, a Red Mountain Appellation vineyard. All of this wine was aged for 19 months in barrels, 90% of which were new French Oak, 10% 1 year old 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 wine has balanced acid and the Red Mountain terroir of the vineyard our grapes come from provide intensity in flavor and aroma. Another great vintage for those patient enough to let the grapes achieve optimum maturity.
