Hedges Family Estate: Grand Reserve Red Mountain/La Haute Cuvée 1996-2019 Vertical Tasting

https://i-winereview.com/blog/... For aficionados of Washington’s most prestigious AVA for Cabernet Sauvignon, this tasting in Seattle was a delicious retrospective of Hedges top wine from 1996-2019. Few Washington wineries are old enough to provide a vertical set of wines spanning 25 years or more, so this was a unique chance to see how one ‘terroir’s wines reflect both the land and the evolution of the family’s response to it.

Everything you need to know about Red Mountain AVA

https://www.falstaff.com/en/nd... At just about over 4,000 acres (of which 2,700 are planted), Red Mountain AVA (American Viticultural Area) is Washington State’s smallest, but arguably most prestigious, AVA. Formerly an uninhabited stretch of land that seemed inhospitable to grape growing, it has become the epicenter for high-quality fruit in Washington. While Cabernet Sauvignon comprises a large percentage of plantings, anything from Grenache to Sangiovese to Albariño is finding a home here. It has only been an official AVA for just over 20 years, but its meteoric rise is well-justified. Here’s why you should pay attention to Red Mountain and its wines.
