Tucked just behind Hedges Winery halfway up Sunset Road in the famed Red Mountain AVA, you’ll find a 46-acre vineyard planted to mostly Bordeaux, Spanish and Rhônevarietals. Red Heaven Vineyard, along with the likes of Force Majeure and other Red Mountain visionaries, had the forethought to plant Rhône varietals on the hottest AVA in Eastern Washington.
For as wonderful and harmonious as these three varietals are blended together, they could not be more different on the vine. Syrah, the dark blending beauty oozing with blue and black fruits is one of the earliest ripening vinifera in our stable. Grenache, the lesser known of the three, takes center stage in this GSM with racy red raspberry and a rustic spice that needs every degree day Red Mountain can give to ripen fully. Mourvédre carries with it a candied red fruit matched with gamey, wild characters that accentuate the dusty, earthy terroir of this exceptional AVA.
The intensely rich mouthfeel offers flavors of ripe raspberry, tea leaf and white pepper backed by a soft, rounded mouthfeel common in Rhône style blends. Come by the tasting room now through the end of November to taste our newest release.
