14 Hands Hot To Trot Columbia Valley 2010 Red Wine, $8.99-$10.99, 87 points,(Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvedre varietals)is a nice little sweet red wine; I'm sure there will be some poo-pooing it, but sweet is in, and though I'm not traditionally a sweet wine fan, I did enjoy this wine with burgers and by itself. So, Stefanie, if your up for a sweetly done effort of a red wine, I'm going to recommend this one.
Hot To Trot has a beautiful crystalline ruby color, with a broad transparent rim.
The aroma is subtle sweet cooking spice and grape.
A light to medium body carries a sweet juicy blend of red raspberry jam, red cherry, and spice, with a minimal petrol after taste. This wine does not strike me as too acidic, though I found myself salivating. Noticeably tannic, Hot To Trot is yet quite drinkable, but there is a spicy kick of a finish.
Steve, their Merlot is said to be even better; now I understand why you recommended this to me, thanks,
