    THE VINTAGE:
    The 2016 vintage experienced the best of both worlds with a hot spring and early summer. A cooler than normal end of the ripening season allowed the wines to have ripeness, yet maintain freshness and elegance.
    The early dry and warm spring, combined with cooler temperatures in August and September, slowed down ripening and resulted in the longest harvest on record in Washington State.
    Overall, 2016 saw very favorable growing conditions, producing wines with nicely resolved tannins and maturity.

    WINEMAKING:
    Grapes were sourced from vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley, including the Horse Heaven Hills.
    The fruit was de-stemmed and crushed before undergoing 7-10 day fermentations.
    Merlot and other varieties were blended in to build structure and complexity.
    The wine was aged for several months in a combination of American and French oak barrels to soften and round the blend.

    FLAVOR PROFILE:
    “The 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, juicy red that features aromas of dark cherry, black currant, coffee and subtle hints of spice. These flavors are complemented by a touch of spicy oak and emphasized by refined tannins.” - Keith Kenison, Winemaker
