2017 DEAD CANYON RANCH RED BLEND BY MERCER ESTATES, HORSE HEAVEN HILLS WASHINGTON STATE
Mercer Estates planted their first wine grapes in the Horse Heaven Hill is 1972. They have taken advantage of the rich soil and the desert climate to produce some elegant tannin Cabernet Sauvignon wines, as well as other wines along the way. They had their first vintage year in 2005 at Prosser, Washington. They have a state-of-the-art winery giving the winemakers the luxury of temperature control and the ideal settings for fermentation. Their barrel rooms allow for long and varied aging, so that everything is not cookie-cutter and rigid by-the-book production methods. They have seven different brands, and this particular wine is not even on their web page.
