Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This review is for the 2010 - 14 Hands Hot To Trot Red is composed of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvedre aged in French and American Oak for 6 months. It is a medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with pleasant aromas of cherry/black cherry, dark chocolate, oak and vanilla. It has refined tannins (decant for 15 min), is off-dry and has a long finish. This wine has a mass appeal - can be drunk with food or as a sipper, it will benefit from short term cellaring; drink 2012-2015. My impression: NICE, 88-89 pts. Tasted Oct/12.
