Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Ste. Michelle Wine Estates 14 Hands Hot to Trot Red Blend 2009 Wine Review
Dynamite for the price! Simply wow. Smooth, full-bodied and packed with luscious dark plum and blackberry aromas. This wine takes its name from the time when wild mustang horses ran freely around the hills of eastern Washington State where this wine is made. 4.4/5 Heavenly Hamburger Wine

|Darlene Myers rated this wine as 4.5/5 with the following review:|
I had to give this wine a 90 rating for two reasons. The great value and the really good wine. A splendid price, this blend of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvedre is complex and full of flavorful dynamics. Lots of big bold cherry fruits, chocolate and vanilla toasted oak. It's a beautiful wine at a beautiful price.
|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 4.4/5 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.

|Generous aromas of ripe berries and dark stone fruits open this ruby-hued|
wine. Fleshy flavors of cherries and plum are met with soft and velvety
tannins, finishing with a hint of mocha.”
