Hedges Family Estate Red Mountain 2011

Wine and Spirits 91pts:

A cool-weather blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah, malbec and franc, this wine leads with a scent of rye followed by compact, chewy cabernet flavor. It’s dark fruited, formidably tannic and tense in its structure, with a finish that’s pleasingly savory. Decant and pour with butterflied lamb chops.

From the winemaker:

Deep purple color, yet not opaque. A sense of finesse in the color which suggests liveliness on the palate. The mouth feel is angular, with grace and precision. The 2011 vintage produced a savory character in the wines, like that of fennel, salt, tar and steel. Highly integrated tannins, dusty in a sense, alongside protective acidity guarding against premature oxidation.
