SEVEN HILLS “SHW Founding Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

(Walla Walla Valley, Washington) $50

Just about the best thing a wine can do is taste like it costs twice as much as it does. That’s the case with this beautiful cabernet from Seven Hills with its rich aromas/flavors of cigar box, blackberries, dark chocolate, vanilla bean, espresso, cinnamon and that wonderful “rocky” character often evident in Walla Walla wines. Plus: soft tannin, a sleek body, and a long finish. Seven Hills (a partnership of four pioneers in the region) planted some of the first cabernet in Walla Walla, now considered one of the top wine regions in Washington, and one of the next great U.S. regions for cabernet. And this wine comes from those 30+ year old vines. (14.9% abv)
