14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 2008
Buffe's recommendation. QFC. Blend is good too and is Ryoko's favorite so far.
very nice rich, smooth,deep flavors. Notes of: black berries, vanilla, cocoa, not oaky at all. Long finish. Great wine to drink by itself.
This is a very good wine with a great price, we drink this as an everyday wine. When you just want a good tasting wine for no special reason
External Reviews for 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon Washington
Washington 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon is a lively Cab with aromas of berries and cherries. Soft, round tannins create a lingering finish. Grapes were primarily sourced from warmer sites in the Horse Heaven Hills and on the Wahluke Slope. Fruit from the Yakima Valley and other regions of the Columbia Valley played a supporting role. 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon features aromas of cherries and currants with subtle hints of spice and dried herbs. Fresh flavors of red fruit are complemented by a touch of cocoa and accentuated by fine, round tannins. -- Keith Kenison, WinemakerThe wine was aged for approximately 12 months in a combination of American and French oak barrels to build structure and complexity in the finished blend.Enjoy 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon over the next 3-5 years with steak, BBQ ribs and spinach lasagna.
