14 Hands Winery 2014 Stampede Red Blend, Columbia Valley, $12

By on October 22, 2018

Best Buy! The popularity of the 14 Hands is obvious as the Ste. Michelle Wine Estates brand has become the second largest in the Washington state at 2 million cases. Keith Kenison’s Hot to Trot Red Blend is the flagship wine for this winery in Prosser, but his team’s young Stampede Red Blend has earned a following, too. This Syrah-led blend brings ripe blue fruit, cola and cured meat to the table. Plush tannins and a plummy finish with toffee makes this quite a quaffer that can complement such as Indian curries, Tandoori Chicken and Korean-inspired barbecue fare.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 100,000 cases
