Discover 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon:
14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich and juicy red color with aromas of dark cherry, blackcurrant, coffee and subtle notes of spices. These aromas are complemented by a hint of spicy oak and enhanced by exquisite tannins.
The inspiration for the “14 Hands” wines is reminiscent of a time when wild musts once roamed freely in the eastern hills of Washington state. These small horses, with 14 hands high – the equivalent of the width of a man’s palm and the way the horses were measured at that time – would come down daily from the hills to drink from the mighty Columbia River and graze on the lush high grass belt along the riverbank, then retire to the hills to cool off at night. Strong and sticky, these little horses became known for their endurance and were revered all over the world. This unique and beautiful landscape, which gave these wild horses their spirit and resilience, now feeds our vineyards. With clay sand and gravel soils, these hills demand a strong and decisive vineyard and our 14 handcrafted vines enjoy this unique and world class terroir. With the fruits of these persistent vineyards, 14 handmade wines are transformed into big, bold and succulent fruits, red and crunchy, white fruits that are sewn together with the spirit and irrepressible legend of the region.
14 Hands celebrates the spirit of these wild horses as well as the rich and unique history of Washington wines not only in our wines, but also in the vibrant colors and images of our popular varietal labels and our new Hot to Trot red and white blend wines. Whether you are enjoying 14 hands in a glass at your favorite restaurant or sharing a bottle with family or friends, our wines are the quintessence of Washington’s fruity wines – go ahead, enjoy every meal with ease and on every occasion, and we offer excellent value for money. Bringing this bottle of wine to a party is more than just wine – it is a delicious wine with a unique history that will surely trigger an unforgettable conversation.
With the fruity tastes of black cherry, blackberry and hawthorn, as well as chocolate, leather, graphite, mint and dried herbs. Cabs are elastic and velvety in their texture and match perfectly with stewed short ribs, veal chops, lamb sticks, fried winter vegetables and, of course, hamburgers.
