2015 Mike Horan Merlot

100% Merlot from the Columbia Valley AVA. It’s rich ruby red in color makes way for the heavy caramel and blackberry nose. True representation of traditionally structured Merlot. It’s earthy feel dances with tart plum then eases into a blackberry and cherry middle palate. It features a great balance of acidity and tannins with a spicy finish.

Mike Horan, our great grandfather, was a prize-winning apple grower in the Valley. At the National Apple Show he was awarded the title Apple King and won $2000. With that money he bought the family a 1910 Buick that we featured on the label. The illustration of the Buick is from the picture of him and his family that was taken behind the Horan house in his orchard.
