    I love reading your wine reviews. You give me some wonderful information about the winery, the wine and the area it comes from. i walk away from each review knowing something fun that I didn’t or wouldn’t have known otherwise. 🙂

    • That makes me happy. I am so very glad that I can make reading my reviews more then just about the wine in the bottle. 🙂

  • Sounds robust. Most of my favorite wines are blends that include a cabernet. For quite a while we were imbibing in the Ménage à Trois red wine. Red is our favorite.

    • I get that. I am generally in to medium bodied wines. This happens to be one of those. BTW: “Menage a Trois” is on my list to post. :-)))

  • I don’t drink as you know, but I love the label and the name. 🙂

    • It is a cool label. I love the reason behind the name as well. Whether you drink wine or not, sometimes the story behind the wine is really fun and entertaining. 🙂

  • ginavalley

    Love the name!

    I used to drink red wine exclusively, now Wine of any type is a no no. You comment on my orchid blog gave me the idea for my newest post, about Arctic Flowers.

    • Ahh!!! I’m sorry to hear that. I do hope you, at least, enjoyed their story.

      How cool! I’m so glad I was the inspiration for a new post. :-)))

    I’m always looking for a good new wine but it’s so hard to know what will suite my taste. Like movies everyone has their own taste so it’s great to read about a new wine that’s worth trying out. Love the history behind the name as well.

    • Hi john, How true that is. With the plethora of wines that are available it is really hard to decide what to get and what will be good. Let me know what you think when you try this one.

      Some of the histories associated with a vineyard/winery are quit fascinating and worth sharing. 🙂

    Susan, this is great, thanks so much. Love the history of its Origin

    • Hi Paul, Your are most welcome. I do love sharing some of the fun facts associated with a winery/vineyard.

  • Susan Geers

    Good review. I love the explanation of the name and where it came from. I will look for this next time I’m out. Thanks for the recommendation. I have shared on my facebook page.

    • Thanks Susan, I find the history of some wines and how they came to be really fun and something worth sharing. The wine happnes to really good as well, a bonus. Oh, and thanks for sharing my wine review. 🙂

  • Claire Cappetta

    Great review Susan! Occasionally I’ll dip into a Cabernet but usually stick to a deep Merlot 🙂

    • Thanks a bunch Claire, If you’re a Merlot lover, you might really like this one. it’s lighter then most Cabernets. 🙂

    I guess I’m a lush since I like most red wines… but Zin and Syrah currently top my list. I try to cycle through new ones on a regular basis. The label on this one makes me a bit homesick for the northwest. I read somewhere since moving to NC that the state is 14th in overall wine production and yet the local Harris Teeter chain doesn’t carry many wines made in the state. Stores in Boise always carried Idaho wines. I think I need to start pinning wines I’d like to try as well!

    • A good Zin is always my first go to varietal.

      I also love the label and the story behind it as well. That is an amazing statistic, and better yet (sadly) for Harris Teeter not to carry any is absurd.

      I pin wines or take a picture of a wine I read about all the time. It is a good way for me to refer back when I want to try something a little different. 🙂

  • Kelsey Apley

    I just started trying to enjoy wine, and I think I might have to give this one a go!!

    • Hi Kelsey, How cool! When you do, come back and give you thoughts

  • Martin Casper

    Susan…you always have such interesting posts. I never knew that about 14 Hands Winery. I always wondered what the significance was…thanks for sharing and enlightening.

    • Some times the history behind a wine/winery and how they came up with a label is so very interesting. I loved the story behind this one too.

  • We love Cabernets and will be on the lookout for 14 Hands. Thanks for the recommendation!

    • You’re most welcome. Let know when you do. I would love to hear about your experience. 🙂

  • As what my best friend always says, you can never go wrong with a good bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. Thanks for the info on this, Susan. I’ve got another wine to try.

    • I loved this wine and it history. When you give it a try, come back and give me your opinion. 🙂
