Seven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

External Review:

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley is a rock-solid value that gives up plenty of lead pencil, new leather, black currants and subtle herbal notes to go with a firm, structured, medium-bodied profile on the palate. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot and the balance Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec that spent 16 months in 25% new oak, it too will have over a decade of longevity.

The Cabernet is stiffened up with small amounts of Petit Verdot, Cab Franc and Malbec, resulting in a firm, herbal, but very well-balanced Bordeaux-style blend. There’s compact cassis fruit, streaked with light stem, earth and herb. This is a wine that should improve with bottle age through 2019.

Fresh and vibrant, open-textured and appealing, with pure blueberry and currant fruit. A veil of fine tannins drapes over the gentle finish. Best from 2015 through 2020.

Consistency across the entire portfolio is one of the strengths of Seven Hills, here expressed in a beautifully blended Cabernet that includes smaller percentages of Cab Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carmenère. Smooth upon entry, showing pretty purple fruits through the mid-palate, it concludes with traces of smoke, cacao and espresso, all perfectly framed and balanced.

Supple, focused and appealing for the floral, vaguely meaty overtones to the nicely detailed blackberry and dark plum fruit. Finishes with finesse. Drink now through 2016.
