Bottle of wine and glass of wine

SEVEN HILLS Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

(Walla Walla Valley, WA) $30

One of the best things a wine can do is taste like it costs twice as much as it does. That’s the case with this steal of a Cabernet from Seven Hills, with its rich aromas and flavors of cigar box, blackberries, dark chocolate, vanilla bean, espresso, cinnamon, and that wonderful rocky character often evident in Walla Walla wines. The sleek structure and long finish are a testament to Washington’s reputation as the “Bordeaux” of the American West. A bottle of this and a grilled steak, and you are all set. (As an aside, Walla Walla, one of the best regions in Washington for Cabernet and Syrah, is often said to be like the Napa Valley was forty years ago). (14.6% abv)
