Tasting notes: CMS by Hedges Cellars

This harmonious blend hails from the Columbia Valley in Washington & is made up of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot, 3% Syrah & 2% Cabernet Franc. For only $11 this wine is Top Drawer, note the capital T & D. This wine was rich yet easy to drink alone or with food. Complex but well balanced. It certainly could have passed for a much pricier bottle of wine.

nose: black fruits, leather, tiny hints of meat at first & a slightly minty-herbaceousness.

palate: Rich, harmonious, black currants, blackberries. Nicely balanced acidity leading into some tasty supple tannins. It had a little bit of a rustic, funky quality in the background hiding with some pepper & smoke. The vanilla laden finish is long & sweet.
$11
4/5

This would make excellent steak night wine. Just be sure & get two bottles.
