2014 Hedges Family Estate Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Review
9/10 – Savory yet very beautiful on the palate, a great buy!
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.

Corvus Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Award Winning Wine, no surprise as it’s from Walla Walla, Washington. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is a vineyard designate wine from the world renowned Red Mountain AVA. This cooler year wine is an elegant and balanced wine that opens with a big cherry nose and a hint of spice. Allspice, nutmeg, coffee, vanilla, and subtle tar notes appear on the mid-palate. The nice acidity and bright fruit graduates with a long clean finish that has been a cornerstone of the Corvus Cellars 100% Cabernet Sauvignon since they made their first bottle.
