Description  more details

Gifford Hirlinger Cabernet. This is a wonderful example of Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State. It starts with a nose of dark cherry and blackberry with hints of toasty oak. The mouth is an extension of the nose, with more blackberry, cherry, and a touch of black olive. The tannins are smooth and refined leading you to lively acidity that lingers on the finish. It's a hearty wine that I look forward to pairing with a prime rib roast served with roasted rosemary potatoes!

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 businessresulting in Gifford Hirlinger. We know its 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 1800s. So, Gifford and Hirlinger were the last names of those relatives on the paternal and maternal sides respectively.
