This wine is a good example of a pretty moderate American Red. It’s not an amazing bottle by any means, but it’s plenty good for a drink with a friend over a meal. The taste of cherry and fruit is there and the smoothness is plentiful. This supple wine is 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 16% Syrah. This blend results in a very smooth finish and makes the wine very drinkable with food. It’s not too spicy and not too mild. The wine is made in Washington State by the Hedges Family Estate company in Columbia Valley. At $11.99 it’s a bargain.
