14 Hands Hot To Trot Red Blend 2015

External Review by We Speak Wine:

WINEMAKING: • Red varieties including Merlot and Syrah and were gently destemmed separately into traditional upright fermenters. • Aging took place in a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral French and American oak for over ten months to preserve fresh fruit flavors but further soften the wine. • The final blend was assembled just weeks prior to bottling FLAVOR PROFILE: “This polished red wine offers aromas of cherry, red currant and tea. Flavors of cherries, ripe berries and plums, supported by a frame of refined tannins, give way to subtle notes of baking spice on a persistent finish.” - Keith Kenison, Winemaker RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: BBQ Pork, Grilled Portabella Mushrooms, Gourmet Cheeses, Lasagna Florentine Blend: Predominately Merlot and Syrah with seven other varietals in smaller quantities including Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Mourvedre, Pinot Noir and Sangiovese Alcohol: 13.5% TA: 0.53 g/100 mL pH: 3.77
