Will you guys be celebrating and watching the Derby this weekend?
I wanted to pop in and share a perfect wine to sip during the festivities. 14 Hands 2013 Limited Release Kentucky Derby® Red Blend Columbia Valley and new 14 Hands 2014 Stampede Red Blend Columbia Valley are available now nationwide. Besides a drink idea to savor for yourself, a bottle would make a great gift for a Kentucky Derby® themed party host/hostess or even a Mother’s Day idea if your mom is into the Derby excitement too. Or they would make a unique addition to your wine collection, to save for another special occasion.
Some information from the brand 14 Hands Winery about the two wines:
- “The 2013 Kentucky Derby Red Blend is a limited edition wine, commemorating the 142nd annual Kentucky Derby and the winery’s continued partnership with the “Run for the Roses,”™ four years running. Similar to the previous vintage, this sophisticated wine offers a harmony of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah to provide a flavorful wine experience that showcases juicy Washington fruit character.”
- “The 2014 Stampede Red Blend joins a successful family of red blends from the winery, including the perennial fan-favorite Hot to Trot Red Blend and the Kentucky Derby Red Blend. Stampede offers a lively combination of Syrah, Merlot, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Mourvèdre to provide a rich, flavorful wine experience. This full-bodied red blend features the aromas and flavors of spice, cedar, cola and cherry, with a lively acidity and a dramatic enduring finish.”
