Best domestic Syrah I've had all year. Smoked meat, leather, dense black fruit. Excellent bottle!

Haven't had Hedges in over a year- reminded of how badass they are. A pleasant funk. Dark fruit. Fantastic.

A big and fruity bouquet dark plum and dark cherry fruit with notes of smoke dried meat savage mocha and dark earth, violet floral notes. A big and chewy wine on the tongue with lots of dark berry and plum fruit. A host of dark earth and spice and fine tannins a nice savory finish. Finish 45+ excellent+

Hedges Red Mountain Syrah 2012. Perfect for the transition into Fall - if you didn't know it, you'd think it was French. The color of blueberry pie!

Surprisingly good. Other commenters are correct. Moderate body for the style, fruit forward with a decidedly dry finish. “Frenchy” for sure

Been a minute since I had some Washington Syrah! Usually tend to steer more towards the N Rhône for Syrah but thought I'd shake things up a bit. Stylistically, this has one foot in the old world and one foot in the new; the fruit is definitely riper and flashier with obvious new oak but it's not completely lacking in restraint or secondary complexity either. Pours a violet tinged ruby hue of medium (+) concentration, fading slightly to a paler pure ruby hue. Med/med (+) concentration of aromatics of ripe blackberry, ripe black cherry, blueberry preserve, fresh violet floral character, turned gravel earth, toasted clove, vanilla, and baking spice new French oak character, underpinned by cracked black pepper and roasted thyme. On the palate, it shows more ripe black and blue fruits, violets, clove and baking spice, and thyme, as well as a sweet hoisin sauce character. Moderate acidity, dry, medium (+) intensity of fine grained tannin. Medium bodied; plush and richly textured on the palate. Alcohol is medium (+)/high and a touch hot on the palate. Decent length. The level of ripeness and new oak is a bit much for me or I'd be rating this a few points higher. I suspect a couple more years might help a bit though. Overall though, definitely not too shabby! Just could be a little dialed back for me personally but still pretty nice for what it is.
