2016 Seven Hills Winery Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley
Seven Hills Winery has been growing and making Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses Washington State’s unique terroir for more than 30 years. This wine is drawn from small, hand-farmed vineyards from a range of Sub-AVAs in the Columbia Valley. It 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 and black berry fruit character, accented by savory notes. It is well framed by silky fruit tannins, juicy brightness, and a sweet oak finish. It will improve for 4 to 6 years from vintage, and can be cellared for up to 10 years.
