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.

We have been enjoying 14 Hands wines for several years now and the Merlot (any year) is devine! Smooth finish, low tannin, no nasty oak taste. This coming from one who only drank sweet whites. Not sold in most stores, but available at CostPlus World Market. We buy cases directly from Washington.

Love it! Smooth, dry, creamy, rich dark cherries, and maybe a hint of mocha. Medium tannins, mellow finish. Love it by the fire on a chilly night...mmmm.

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, WinemakerBlend:78% Merlot11% Syrah9% Cabernet Sauvignon2% other premium red varietiesAppellation: Washington stateAlcohol: 13.5%Total Acidity: 0.52g/100mlpH: 3.67 ** SOLD OUT **

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

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

Tasting Notes:

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.
