In 1972, the Mercer family planted their first grapes in the Columbia Valley's esteemed Horse Heaven Hills, on the land settled by their great grandfather. At the time, the region was known for its hot and dry climate, strong winds, well-drained soils, and vast grasslands – mostly used for agricultural growing and as grazing sites. But the Mercers believed the zone had significant viticultural potential, planting the very first vines in the area and ultimately establishing the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. \n \nToday the area is home to some of Washington's highest-scoring Cabernet Sauvignons, including the state's first 100-Point wine. Brothers Will and Rob Mercer continue to uphold their family's long-standing tradition of sustainability and superior craftsmanship that has led to the incredible success of their wines. \n \nAnd success is a huge understatement. Their wines consistently earn rave reviews, with critics lauding their mouth-watering Cabs for their enticing flavors, exceptional structure, and all the nuanced intricacies that you would expect from a $50+ bottle. \n \n“A pleasingly savory Cabernet from estate sources in the Horse Heaven Hills, this leads with scents of peppercorn and cardamom. Its sleek red-cherry suite of flavors is surprisingly light and buoyant, with limber texture and tobacco-scented tannins.” — 91 Points, Wine & Spirits \n \n“Lots of currants, fresh flowers and walnuts on the nose and palate. Full body, soft and velvety tannins and a warm, ripe-fruit finish with vanilla and new wood. A little obvious, but satisfying for a big wine. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Syrah and 3% Merlot” — 91 Points, James Suckling \n \n“A spry and appealing red, with lively black cherry and dried sage flavors that add richness toward fine-grained tannins.” — 90 Points, Best Buy & #72 Top 100 of 2020, Wine Spectator \n \n
