Nearly fifty years ago the Mercer family planted the first wine grapes in the Columbia Valley’s Horse Heaven Hills, on land our great-grandfather settled in 1886. We strive to maintain Willis Mercer’s independent spirit in our wines, grown predominantly from these original vineyards – tended by us, made by us.
This wine gives aromas of ripe red fruit, blackberry pie, dried cranberries with hints of brown sugar and warm baking spices. Powdery tannins lend structure to this wine, while maintaining elegance and ending in a long lingering finnish.
Our Chardonnay opens with notes of fresh pear, caramel apple, and honeydew melon surrounded by notes of toasted marshmallow and vanilla cream. A core of acidity keeps the wine fresh on the palate to help balance it’s rich and creamy midpalate.
Notes of candied walnuts, ripe raspberry jam, plum, and dried cranberries mingle with sweet coconut and vanilla. In the palate, the fruit is mocha and blueberries. This wine has a structural core of powdery tannins that are lifted with a touch of acidity. This big, bold Merlot will pair well with many dishes and has amazing aging potential.
This wine leads with aromas and flavors of bursting ripe, black cherry and plum with notes of milk chocolate, coffee and sweet smoke. All of this lends to a balance of plush fruit and powdery tannins in the mid-palate, ending with a long lingering finish with notes of bing cherry and spice.
