14 Hands Merlot. This handsomely structured Merlot is packed with cherry and berry flavors. Round, soft and nuanced with oak, it’s food-friendly and easy-drinking. Our vineyards were once home to wild horses that roamed the starkly beautiful hills and drank from the mighty Columbia River. 14 hands in height, these tough little horses were revered around the world. The terrain that gave them endurance and spirit, now feeds our wines. Our 14 Hands wines share the soul and intensity of this unbridled freedom. Alc. 13.5% by vol. Cellared & bottled by 14 Hands Winery, Paterson, WA.
