Food Pairings for 14 Hands Merlot Reserve
■Over 98% of the fruit was sourced from very warm sites in the heart of the Horse Heaven Hills. ■Ripe grapes were destemmed and inoculated with various strains of yeast to maximize complexity. ■A twice daily pumpover regime was used to extract color and flavors. ■ When the desired tannin structure was achieved, the wine was drained away from the skins and placed into 28% new American oak barrels and 72% neutral barrels. ■Malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel. ■Racking took place every three months during the two- year aging process. ■Cabernet Sauvignon was blended in to soften tannins, while Cabernet Franc and Malbec were added for complexity. ■Each variety was vinified separately with blending occurring just prior to bottling.
This brawny Merlot opens with heady aromas of black cherries and chocolate. Luscious flavors of plum and ripe berries are supported by chewy tannins and a long finish.
