Tasting notes

Gorgeous dark purple color. Aromas of blackberry jam, cassis and black pepper, cocoa powder, sweet herbs and just a hint of lemon zest with cinnamon and clove and lightly buttered toast. Lush entry with flavors of cassis and black pepper , followed by slight lemon peel  and ending with hints of cinnamon and caramel notes. Tannins are soft but pair beautifully with the bright acidity to create an experience in the mouth that is both inviting and intriguing. 

Production notes

Grapes are from Hedges Estate Vineyard, which is in the Red Mountain AVA. This wine was cold soaked overnight then inoculated with yeast, fermented for 8 days on skins while being pumped over twice daily before pressing to barrels, where it was inoculated with malo-lactic bacteria. It was 100% barrel aged for 10 months in 100% new oak consisting of 33% French and 67% American.

Other notes

Harvest Notes: As in 2010, 2011 was another excellent but slightly unusual vintage in Washington State. The La Nina current again made for cool spring temperatures, which delayed bud break and slowed early season growth. When combined with a warm but not particularly hot summer, veraison was one to two weeks late, which meant Malbec, a mid-season ripening variety, came off during a cooler time of year than usual, resulting in expressive, concentrated fruit and color, lower alcohol and wonderful acidity.
