haBest Buy! Keith Kenison-led 14 Hands Winery ranks among the top 10 premium wine brands in the U.S., and this latest release of Cabernet Sauivgnon serves as just another reason why. Its theme of black cherry, dark plum, toast and smoky oak comes with round and sweet blueberry skin tannins that are capped by blackberry and black pepper. Suggested pairings include Tomato-Basil Bruschetta, Eggplant Parmesan, herb-crusted prime rib, steak or venison stew. According to AC Nielsen, 14 Hands is the No. 1-selling wine in Seattle and Portland since 2011, so it’s available at grocers throughout the region.
