14 Hands wines are inspired by the unbridled spirit of the wild horses that once freely roamed eastern Washington.
Though Labelled as a Cab, this one is technically a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% other varieties including Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Syrah
From the Winemaker: “Rich, juicy red that features aromas of dark cherry, black currant, coffee and subtle hints of spice. These flavors are complemented by a touch of spicy oak and emphasized by refined tannins”
Bright, fresh, cool and engaging. Really draws you in.
Rich Dark red
On the nose I got some nice dark fruits (mainly cherries) and a bit of orange peel
On the palate, more dark fruits, cherries, plums and small hint of spice.
Pair with grilled red meats, ribs, meat sauced pastas.
At around $9 this is an excellent wine for the money
THE BOTTOM LINE
I really enjoyed this Cab. At around $9 you’ll be hard pressed to find anything as good on the market at this price point.
