2012 Hedges HIP Merlot ‘Bacchus Vineyard’


Hedges Family Estate was founded in 1987 when Tom Hedges and his wife Annie-Marie blended up their first Bordeaux blend of Cabernet and Merlot. It was their first foray into making a proprietary blend which they exclusively sold to Vin & Spirit Centralen in Stockholm, Sweden. Two short years later, they purchased 50 acres of premium land on Red Mountain, in Washington’s Yakima Valley, and planted the majority of it with classic Bordeaux varieties. The business is a true family affair w/ their son Christophe at the helm of Marketing and their daughter Sarah in the role of Head Winemaker. Notably, Hedges Family Estate winery switched to all biodyanmic farming in 2008 and released Washington State’s first Demeter certified biodyanmic Cabernet Sauvignon in 2015.

The 2012 Hedges HIP Merlot “Bacchus Vineyard” has a dark red color in the glass that shows off a well balanced aroma with a deep mix of black cherry, blackberry, raspberry, roasted coffee, fall spices and dark cocoa. Very smooth, fresh red berry fruits meet you on the first sip that further develops on the palate with cinnamon spice, chocolate, pepper and vanilla as you roll it around on your tongue. A pleasant dryness and structure build out the finish and remind you this wine is an absolute overachiever at this price. It is perfect for pairing with a roast, grilled pork, duck or all by itself by a toasty fire.
