14 Hands Merlot Washington 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes were sourced from vineyards throughout Washington state,including the Horse Heaven Hills, Columbia Valley, and Wahluke Slope. The wine was aged in a combination of American and French oak barrels to build structure and soften the blend. All varieties were vinified and aged separately. Blending occurred near bottling to enhance mouth-feel and complexity

I really enjoyed the first taste of this wine - very smooth, pleasant taste, not overpowering in any way. I like the smoothness, but nothing stood out about it. I drank it with a strongly flavored pasta sauce, and I don't think that was an advantageous pairing for this wine. Source: Walmart Price: $8.95 For the price, it's a great bargain. I would drink it on it's own, with cheeses, or a less bold dish.

14 Hands Merlot offers classic Washington aromas of blackberries, plums and black cherries. Expressive flavors of berries and cherries are joined by subtle nuances of mocha and spice.

With a label of galloping Mustang horses, 14 Hands bottles are instantly recognizable. 14 Hands Winery is located in the eastern hills of Washington.

14 Hands Merlot exhibits classic Washington aromas of blackberries and dark stone fruits. Blackberries are repeated on the palate with notes of cherries and spice. While soft and luxurious in the mouth, this wine has a firm backbone of tannins

Flavor Profile:"14 Hands Merlot begins with distinctive aromas of dark fruits, baking spice and earth which are typical of the variety when grown in Washington. Subtle flavors of boysenberry, pie crust and allspice, surrounding a bright cherry core, are supported by a framework of supple tannins and culminate with a lengthy, lush finish." - Keith Kenison, WinemakerTechnical Data:Blend: 78% Merlot, 11% Syrah, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, & 2% other premium red varietiesAppellation: Washington stateAlcohol: 13.5%Total Acidity: 0.52g/100mlpH: 3.67 ** SOLD OUT **
