14 Hands Red 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

■ Red varieties including Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvedre were gently de-stemmed separately into traditional upright fermenters. ■ After 24-48 hours of cold soaking to extract fruit flavors, the must was warmed and then inoculated to begin 5-7 day fermentations. ■ Pumpovers occurred twice daily to further extract color, flavors and tannins. ■ Malolactic fermentation immediately followed primary fermentation, enhancing complexity and reducing acidity. ■ Barrel aging took place in mostly neutral French and American oak for six months to preserve fresh fruit flavors and further soften the wine. ■ The final blend was assembled just weeks prior to bottling.

Opaque read-purple color. Ewww--not the prettiest nose--musty, very little bouquet, although, since it is not clear what grapes went into this wine, I'm not sure what I should be finding. Wow--pretty sweet on the tongue. Label does not indicat RS, but there is some. I get all the berry thing. Not a lot of oak or tannin. If oak and tannin snaps your carrot, then this is not your wine. I really think this wine would be good with various fresh fruits--apples (I like Granny Smith), nectarines, pears, persimmons. US$8.99 at Trader Joe's.

Nice cab/merlot blend, not overly complex but decent balance with a good bit of dark fruit, mild tannin and a fairly long finish.

So yes, I know it's March Madness, and the day before St. Patrick's Day (not a stellar wine holiday I must say), but you know what? It's still March and that means it's still Washington Wine Month! So I went out today to a local merchant near my office called Grand Central Market to find an interesting bottle, as I recall last year they had a nice selection of Washington Wines. Well in the last year, they've remodeled the store and drastically cut down the size of their wine selection, but fortunately they still had a selection of 6 or 7 Washington reds, so I wasn't disappointed.

Outstanding blend that belies its affordable price. Although a tad bit sweet and fruit forward, these attributes are in proportional balance and contribute to the overall enjoyable experience of this excellent wine.

"This Washington state red blend opens with generous aromas of crème de cassis and sweet blackberries. Fleshy, dark fruit flavors are joined by notes of wild huckleberries and a subtle pie crust nuance. Balanced by soft and velvety tannins, this smooth, easy drinking wine finishes with hints of toast and mocha." - KEITH KENISON, WINEMAKER ** SOLD OUT **

A plush framework of soft tannins supports the red and dark fruit flavors that leisurely give way to subtle notes of baking spice and mocha on the finish.

Generous aromas of ripe berries and dark stone fruits open this ruby-huedwine. Fleshy flavors of cherries and plum are met with soft and velvetytannins, finishing with a hint of mocha.
