Hedges La Haute Cuvée 2014
Gorgeous deep garnet color. Wow! Really intense dried fig, cassis and dried rosemary. Blackberry, black pepper and sage pair nicely with cinnamon and cumin. A hint of earthy cocoa shows itself as well. A bright and full entry really excites the palate. The wine sends shots of blackberry, cinnamon and cocoa flavors out and you end with an intensely structured and full finish. This is a wild, complex, "savage" Cab that will definitely mellow on the palate (but not aromatically) over the next 10 to 20 years and seems to constantly change with every sniff and taste. This wine is currently not for the faint of heart. It is big and bold, exploding with exotic aromas and flavors--everything a Biodynamically-made Cab should be. I would taste it in 5-10 year increments.
