Seven Hills Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2009

Member Review by jtryka:

What a busy day! I started this morning at the farmer's market to get some fresh veggies, they had a wonderful selection of fresh asparagus, broccoli, tomatoes, sugar snap peas, lettuce and wonderful fresh ripe strawberries. Then off to the World Market to pick up a few items, then to the fish market to get tonight's dinner (more on that later on), then the meat market to get some wonderful Angus T-bones (I've had a craving for a T-bone since hearing the "beef it's what's for dinner commercials on the radio all through Idaho and Wyoming!) and some thick juicy ribeyes. And so now that the chores are done, I can relax with a nice glass of wine that I brought back from my recent trip to Walla Walla. Tonight I am having a nice bottle of 2009 Seven Hills Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Now there are many differences between the Columbia Valley and Walla Walla Valley wines beyond the price, and one of the most basic differences is that the Columbia Valley wines tend to drink quite well when they are younger, as they tend to be somewhat less harsh and tannic. Of course you also miss the wonderful, dark chocolate hints that Walla Walla is famous for, but in a pinch, I suppose we can make do! For the rest of my review, check out my blog here: http://allaloneonaplanetfullofpeople.blogspot.com/2012/06/2009-seven-hills-columbia-valley.html
