Ripe, fruity nose of berries
Moderately dense core and fleshy on the palate
Medium length finish, young and fresh
I was impressed to see this on the "wines by the glass" list at a local restaurant, but I had to pay $13 for the privilege. It was served in a nice glass at just below room temperature, which is always a bonus. Too often, ordering wine by the glass ends in disappointment.
This wine is the flagship red from Hedges Cellars, a Washington state winery. It has a nice dense core, good fruit, and could probably cellar well if you're patient. I've enjoyed other Hedges wines, too, and recommend that you check them out if you haven't already. Raise a glass!
