It's Derby Day!

This may come as a surprise to you but I LOVE THE KENTUCKY DERBY! I love everything about it and I hope to see it in person one day! We usually go to the dog track to place our bets, although I am starting to enjoy the ease of Twin Spires! Last year, I finished out my last couple of weeks as President of the Junior League and we had an amazing Derby party! I was fortunate enough to buy a hat from Arturo Rios who has designed hats and costume for many famous people including Lady Gaga during her stint on American Horror Story. Look how my friends and I rocked the day!

As much as a fan as I am of the Derby, the outfits and the betting! I am so excited that the Kentucky Derby also means that 14 Hands releases exclusive wines for the Kentucky Derby!






14 Hands Winery continued their partnership with the “Run for the Roses,”™ for the fifth year running. Along with their 3rd vintage of the Limited Release Kentucky Derby® Red Blend (which is delicious), they also released a brand new wine, the 14 Hands 2016 Rosé, which I will be drinking while watching the race this weekend.

14 Hands Winery selections are offered nationwide.

14 Hands 2016 Rose

The 2016 Rosé freshens up the already impressive varietal line-up from 14 Hands Winery. This beautifully, light pink Syrah-based Rosé opens with delicate aromas of rose petals and rhubarb. Refreshing flavors of melon and strawberries are followed closely by a kick of citrus in the finish.

FLAVOR PROFILE
“This Syrah-based Rosé opens with delicate aromas of rose petals and rhubarb. Refreshing flavors of melon and strawberries are followed closely by a kick of citrus in the finish.” Keith Kenison, Winemaker

RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS
Perfect by the glass or with light salads like a classic Niçoise, grilled tuna, paella and salty cheeses.





Kentucky Derby Red Blend

This Limited Release Red Blend was crafted to commemorate 14 Hands Winery proud sponsorship of the Kentucky Derby®, the legendary Thoroughbred race that dates back to 1875. Serve this wine at your Kentucky Derby viewing party paired with party favorites like pulled pork sliders and beef tenderloin skewers.

FLAVOR PROFILE
“This opulent red blend showcases juicy Washington fruit character with aromas of blackberries and plums with subtle hints of chocolate and pepper. Flavors of dark berries and cocoa, supported by plush tannins, give way to a long-lasting, persistent finish.” Keith Kenison, Winemaker

RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS
Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Cherries, Deviled Eggs with Bacon, Italian Cured Meats and Cheese, Country Ham and Biscuits
