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.
Game Of Thrones 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Review
10/10 Light hints interwoven oak a very well made wine.
A delicious nose of blackcurrant, briar and Tahitian vanilla all interwoven through extended aging in the finest French oak barrels. A long and intensely pleasurable finish on the palate, delivers the caress of smooth tannins with a touch of cocoa.
