Notes on the 14 Hands Merlot 750ML 2009

Wine Maker Notes Grapes were sourced from vineyards throughout Washington state, including the Horse Heaven Hills, Columbia Valley, and Wahluke Slope. The wine was aged in a combination of American and French oak barrels to build structure and soften the blend. All varieties were vinified and aged separately. Blending occurred near bottling to enhance mouth-feel and complexity.

Technical Notes The 2009 vintage was cooler than past vintages; bud break arrived on schedule in early April, but a cool, wet spring delayed flowering and reduced fruit set across many varieties. An unusually cool summer produced dramatic differences in ripening between warmer and cooler sites, with veraison extending into September in some cooler areas. However, naturally low yields, combined with over a month of consistently warm weather from late September through late October, produced ripeness and flavor development with extraordinary natural acidity.
