The 14 Hands Reserve Merlot 2011 brims with berry and spice flavors from the Hose Heaven Hills. The nose abounds with aromas of blackberry and rich black cherries. Anise and tobacco linger in the background, providing intrigue. The palate is robust and mouthfilling, with firm, chewy tannins. Flavors of dark berries and stone fruits are present, and the finish is lingering and generous. Enjoy this rich red wine with almost any dinner menu. It will pair particularly well with seared sirloin strip steak, pistachio crusted lamb chops, or chorizo stuffed mushrooms.

Taste SummaryAnise, Black Cherry, Blackberry, Tobacco
