Apples and pears on the nose
Good, acidic core
Straw notes on the finish
Hedges makes a CMS Red and a CMS White. I don't see the white around very often, so I grabbed a bottle for $12 in New York. Hedges is a Washington state winery and I like their wines, in general, as they seem to be consistently good.
The letters in the name stand for Chardonnay, Marsanne, and Sauvignon Blanc, and they create a proprietary blend. This blend makes for a nice alternative white. The wine has good fruit, good acidity, and a nice texture in the mouth. Raise a glass!
