14 Hands Winery Hot To Trot Smooth Red Wine Blend contains Merlot and Syrah predominantly with other select red varieties. This blend is aged in a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral French and American oak for over ten months to preserve fresh fruit flavors and further soften the wine. This polished red wine offers aromas of cherry, red currant, and tea. Flavors of cherry pie, ripe berries, and plums, supported by a frame of refined tannins, give way to subtle notes of baking spice on a persistent finish. This Fourteen Hands Hot To Trot Red Blend pairs well with BBQ pork, beef stew, meatloaf, grilled portabella mushrooms, gourmet cheeses, and lasagna florentine. Enjoy!
