CMS Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah 2011

The Hedges winemaking philosophy is less intervention and less filtration. Sendiment says this wine is vine to bottle!  A Bordeaux style blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 4% Syrah, CMS is a classic. To borrow a double negative from a commercial, I can say that in my experience: "No one doesn't like CMS." From the Hedges Family Estate, this wine reflects the heritage of the owners, Tom, and his French wife, Anne Marie. Done in the true chateau production style, CMS is a deep, dense ruby color with hints of toasted vanilla and chocolate. Medium bodied, CMS is good to go for any occasion.
