14 Hands Merlot Red Wine Review

Name: 14 Hands Merlot
Type: Red
Grape: Merlot
Origin: U.S. – California
Year: 2012
Price: $9.99

This wine, while being an decent wine in a vacuum…is the ugly sister of the Cab in the same vintage. Similar in color, but with a less appealing aroma, a lot more spice and barely any tannins. To my palate this is just a lot lower quality wine for the same price. I would seek out the cabernet of the same vintage and pour all my money into that…as I have done in fact.

14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine Review

Name: 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon
Type: Red
Origin: U.S. – California
Year: 2012
Price: $9.99

This 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark ruby color and aromas of blueberries and currant. Herbal and spicy notes are present on the flavor with fruity notes and a bit of chocolate. It has a round, sumptuous flavor and a lengthy finish and a spicy accent. This is one of my favorite wines on the market right now. It’s very cheap for what you get and I buy it by the case as a kitchen wine and a last minute gift for informal gatherings. The bottle looks good and tastes great, I highly recommend it.
