14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 2009
One word ... YUM. We've been enjoying 14 Hands wines for several years now. Not found in most stores. We ordered cases directly from Washington, but now available at CostPlus World Market. I never liked red wines until I tasted 14 Hands. Cab just as great as the Merlot. Easy to drink, NO nasty tannin, oaky taste. Excellent with red meats & pasta.
Little sweet, drinkable, for the price a winner.
One of my favorite cabernet, very smooth.
Great smooth red with heavy tannins and oaky finish
Had a glass at Tony Roma's, pleasant and nice finish.
A fine wine, for the money
Three and a half glasses

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.
