Mercer Bros Edge of Heaven Red Blend

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.

Vineyard Sourcing

The fruit for this wine is grown at our acclaimed estate vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills. The fruit is exposed to dappled sunlight, allowing for uniform ripening and flavor development. Well balanced crop levels have allowed us to create wines with great depth and concentration.

Growing Season

The 2017 growing season was steady and warm, with harvest right on schedule from early September through mid October. The warm days and cool nights of September gave us ample fruit flavor development, ending with deep concentration balanced with bright acidity, and dusty tannins for excellent texture and finish.


These grapes were picked and immediately sorted in the vineyard. The fruit was not crushed in order to preserve as much whole-berry as possible. At the winery, individual lots were fermented in stainless steel tanks. Twice daily pumpovers allowed gentle extraction of color and tannins. This wine barrel aged for 16 months in 25% New French and 75% American Oak.
