Hedges winery/Alexander Hedges Appellations

Hedges CMS White Sauvignon Blanc 2010  a blend but predomanintely Sauv Blanc.. with some Semillon and Marsanne, hence the CMS... very steely and bright fruit.

Independent Producers Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2010.. single vineyard sourced unoaked, no malo just pure fruit...with stirring on lees to give a little creamy character. good for those wanting to get away from all that butter and sweetness

Hedges CMS Red Cab, Merlot and Syrah 2010 soft and juicy.. has more substance than apothic or Menage, and a very dry finish.. earthy almost

Independent Producers Merlot 2010.. my least favoritee of the group for sure.. messy label.. and a green wine on the nose.

Hedges Red Mountain Red 2010.. predominately Cab with Merlot and Syrah. cab pencil lead nose in the lead.. a bit dusty or earthy on the finish.. seems to be the house style
