WHERE SOIL MEETS SOUL
Led by a passion for authenticity and a deep connection to the land they call home, Tom and Anne-Marie Hedges and the Hedges Family epitomize the modern wine estate. A blend of rich cultural upbringing and a shared love for creating beautiful wine converge at the heart of the bucolic Red Mountain, fostering a true homegrown approach to farming and viticulture. Hedges Family Estate unites past and present, evolving tradition for generations to come.
This year’s Tres Bonne Annee honorees, Anne-Marie and Tom have dug deep into their collection of library wines for the Patrons’ Party. The 2007 Hedges Family Estate Red Blend is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Red Mountain. The wine exhibits dark, concentrated black cherry, blackberry and cassis notes. The fruit is seamlessly integrated with oak aromas of toast, clove, spice, licorice and notes of smoke and caramel. 2007 was a great vintage for Red Mountain and the wines will be long lived.
The Hedges Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 80% Cabernet with 7% Merlot, 5% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Franc and traces of Petit Verdot. Only 1800 six-packs were produced. The wine exhibits entertaining aromas of bright blackberry and cherry with black licorice, fresh leather, earth, cinnamon and clove. There are hints of coffee, dark cocoa, and a touch of vanilla. It is a powerful Cabernet that offers grip and elegance with elongated tannins.
