Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 56% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Syrah

The Flagship of our estate wines, The Three Vineyards is a classic Red Mountain wine showing deep, dense color, firm yet supple tannins, and well defined acidity. The Three Vineyards is a blend of fruit from our three estate vineyards: Hedges Estate Vineyard, Bel'Villa Vineyard, and Red Mountain Vineyard. Always a majority blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this wine is suitable for drinking upon release but will also reward those with the patience to age it.

"Intense, dark, almost black fruit with a mint/menthol background along with toasty, spicy oak and hints of vanilla, cocoa and earth. A stunning bouquet with great complexity. The mouthfeel is full and rich with a great balance of dark fruit and toasty, spicy oak flavors. Nice acid, firm structure and a long finish."
