Over the Hedges, Red Mountain, 2006 Three Vineyards Claret

I was in one of my favorite wine stores the other day for a tasting of "all French wines" when I came across this beauty of a wine. This wine was not in the tasting line-up, but if it would have been allowed the a similar priced Bordeaux would have been put to shame! This bottle hails from the great state of Washington, where some fabulous wine is being made, specifically from the Red Mountain, AVA.
The Red Mountain AVA, Washington's smallest appellation, is situated between the cities of Benton City and West Richland within the larger Yakima Valley just north of the Oregon border. The
south facing (here is one of key reasons for the success of this wine) slope of Red Mountain which is home to more than 37 wineries, including some of Washington's top estates.
I was there a few years ago and came back with cases of wine from my trip, which is why when I came across this label from Red Mountain and read the varietal line-up I was sure it would be a winner. In fact it's QPR winner!
How they got their start: "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 (looks like that bet paid off in spades) buying acreage on an obscure little hill called Red Mountain. The Hedges Family Estate have concentrated their efforts on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and the concept of terroir since their first vintage in 1987." They consider the Three vineyards to be their flagship Estate wine.

When I heard about the wine I just had to try it. I went to my favorite wine store and was able to get the last one. (Lucky me) I tried it and the taste was extravagant. I have to say that I must recommend people for this wine. It taste even better when you have a nice big dinner. The price is decent actually it's pretty worth the taste. This wine is pretty worth trying for those people who loves wine.

So glad you read my review and acted on the recommendation! Bravo! I see you liked the wine as much as I did as well. That is an extremely well made wine for the price. Please pass on your experience to the folks @ Hedges, I'm sure they would love to hear the feed back as well! Have a great week! Cheers
