2015 Seven Hills Winery Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley
Originating in the McClellan family’s first plantings in 1980, Seven Hills Winery has been growing and making Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the unique terroir of our region. This wine is drawn from small, hand-farmed vineyards from a range of Sub-AVAs in the Columbia Valley. This wine expresses the distinctive personality of Cabernet Sauvignon from our region – generous and pleasing, yet well-structured and powerful.
After vinification in open top fermenters, this wine has been aged for 23 months in a selection of French, American, Russian and Hungarian oaks, contributing to a broad spectrum of baking spice in the aroma. The wine has full body with generous and supple black cherry, date, fig and black berry fruit character accented by black licorice. The wine is well framed by silky fruit tannin with a sweet oak finish.
