14 Hands Merlot
Horse Heaven Hills, USA
Merlot, 2004
Price: $12

Classic Washington state merlot flavors: blackberry and spice. The added cabernet adds a little structure to elevate this above your standard merlot. Once on the palate, the fruit character just explodes and gives a certain taste of what I call ‘fruit sweetness’. This is not a sweet wine, but the fruit is just so fresh and pleasant, that I don’t know what else to call it. Chill this slightly for the summer fare and watch it go. Not usually seen in wine stores, so grab all you can.
