2014 Hedges Family Estate Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Review

9/10 – Savory yet very beautiful on the palate, a great buy!

Tasting Notes
Deep purple color, yet not opaque. A sense of finesse in the color which suggests liveliness on the palate. The mouth feel is angular, with grace and precision. The 2011 vintage produced a savory character in the wines, like that of fennel, salt, tar and steel. Highly integrated tannins, dusty in a sense, alongside protective acidity guarding against premature oxidation. This wine, like other Red Mountain AVA wines before, will develop beautifully for up to 25 or more years with proper cellaring. While a fine wine now with food, should develop well for drinking on its own as it slowly evolves.

7/10 – Hint of whiskey from the barrel it was aged in, very fruit flavored, great buy!

Tasting Notes
This small batch wine has been aged for 60 days in whiskey barrels. Red and dark fruit flavors combine with layers of maple and spice, giving way to a long, clean finish.
