Descendants Liégeois Dupont (Hedges) 'Les Gosses Vineyard' Red Mountain Syrah 2016

A stellar Syrah! Wonderful balance of tart reddish blue fruits, graphite, toasted spices, crushed graham cracker on the nose while flavors of toasted spice and blueberry muffin are lifted by bright acidity for a long and balanced finish.

Description

It was 1986 when Washington native Tom Hedges found his first employment in the wine industry marketing American wines in Taiwan. From that humble beginning, Hedges Cellars, then a "virtual" winery, found its first customer: the government of Sweden. Tom and his wife Anne-Marie marketed their Cabernet/Merlot blend to foreign buyers exclusively for two years before going domestic and opening up North American distribution. Still without their own winery, they took a chance buying acreage on an obscure little hill called Red Mountain.
 
The Hedges have concentrated their efforts on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and the concept of terroir since their first vintage in 1987.
 
Their daughter, Sarah Hedges-Goedhart, is the head winemaker with their son Christophe Hedges being the General Manager. Hedges Cellars transitioned to Hedges Family Estate, and farming practices became more focused towards being organic.
