Let’s find out the story behind the mouth-watering Cabernet Sauvignons as well as world-class red blends and single varietal wines.
Since planting the first wine grapes in the Horse Heaven Hills back in 1972, the Mercer family has prided itself on growing a solid base of the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal. Over the years, Mercer has learned that their rich soil and desert climate is beautifully suited for producing elegant tannin structures and enticing flavor profiles. The ability to grow exceptional wine grapes eventually led to the first vintage from Mercer Estates Winery located in Prosser WA in 2005. Today, they still produce mouth-watering Cabernet Sauvignons as well as world-class red blends and single varietal wines.
Mercer vineyards lie on some of the most rugged farmland in Washington with pockets of varied sandy soil types and canyons with differing climatic characteristics. Their vineyards also benefit from the “river effect” providing constant wind pressure which amplifies vine and berry activity.
The state-of-the-art winery allows their winemaking team the luxury of temperature control and immaculate conditions for fermentation. The large Prosser facility provides space and efficiency for true craftsman-style winemaking. And their barrel rooms allow for long and varied barrel-aging programs. It is with full artistic control that the winemaker blends and creates the new world wines that Mercer is so proud to share.
