Gifford Hirlinger Merlot Walla Walla Valley 2008

Member Review by dina lynn:

We had this Merlot in Seattle with dinner just recently. It is the best Merlot we have had. It sings with multiple notes and is extremely smooth. David and I strongly suggest trying this wine. It has notes of caramel as well as a combination of cherries and blackberries.

Gifford Hirlinger is a small family owned operation that started way back in 2001. It was in that year that the Berghan family purchased and began Berghan Vineyards in the heart of the Walla Walla Valley. It started out simply enough, growing grapes and selling them to local wineries. But after a couple of years they decided to complicate their lives by getting into the winemaking aspect of the business… resulting in Gifford Hirlinger. We know it’s a long and hard to pronounce name, but it actually means something to us! We thought our family was new to the Walla Walla area, but as it turns out we have somewhat of a history here. On both sides of the Berghan family, we have a direct ancestor who was born in Walla Walla when their families crossed the country in covered wagons in the mid 1800’s. So, Gifford and Hirlinger were the last names of those relatives on the paternal and maternal sides respectively. Read less
