Hedges Family Estate Winery’s CMS 2013 is a handsome rich red blend made in Eastern Washington from biodynamically farmed grapes. Hedges Family Estate Winery is from Red Mountain in Eastern Washington.
Hedges have earned a very loyal following (and global admiration) for authentic Washington wines with a distinctly Old World look and feel. The vineyards in the prestigious Red Mountain appellation in Benton, Washington were planted to red Bordeaux grape varieties in 1989. The Hedges family are deeply committed to sustainable viticulture, and their wines are Demeter-certified biodynamic. The CMS - a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah - is a beautifully balanced wine with rich ripe black fruit, fresh acidity, grippy tannins and a long, inky finish. You will immediately comprehend the Bordeaux connection, and you’ll also sense the effortless harmony and hum of life that biodynamic farming confers. This wine is for food, so decant for a bit before pairing with a medium rare prime rib roast.
