14 Hands “Hot to Trot” Red Blend
Country & Region: Columbia River Valley, Washington
Tasted Where & When: 26 May, 2013 – Back patio with a Graycliff Lancero
Color: Very dark with a purple tint
Clarity: Clear, with no sediment, but far too dark to see through the body
Aroma: Deep, rich aroma; Very full, with notes of black pepper and currants.
Flavor: Taste comes out with a bit of spice and nutmeg. It thought it was sweet, but my tasting companion disagreed. Overall, the flavor was very smooth and pleasant.
Comments: Very good, considering many regard blends as being inferior (I have seen some compare then to a blended scotch vs a single malt, though I don’t think that is a good side by side) the flavor and feel was quite pleasant overall. This is one that I would definitely consider drinking again.
