Seven Hills Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley 2006
Editorial Reviews for Seven Hills Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley
This has very distinctive and stylish notes of cool fruit on the nose. While less herbal than the Seven Hills Cabernet this shares some of that wine’s black fruit tones with added layers of leather, fennel, and sweetly spiced oak tones. In the mouth this is supported as much by it’s fine acid spine as the crisp tannins. This is still a bit tight and short at this point but with promising dusty, black fruit and spice tones that handle to oak well. 91pts
This is spicy and complex on the nose with hints of toast, white pepper, and herbs adding complexity to the blackberry toned fruit. In the mouth there is excellent freshness but also a fairly prominent herbal component to accompany that freshness. The tannins are very fine giving the wine a fairly silky feel already and the black currant and blackberry leaf tones are classic Cabernet. This is really drinkable with a sneaky, candied blueberry finish. 89pts
Ruby red color with a nose that has hints of nori seaweed and ripe red berries. The palate is lush and smooth with tart red fruit and a sweet finish.
Bright, super fruity black ripe cherry aromas. Flavors are deep and rustic, full of toasted oak and darker berry flavors. Black olive and leather and tar, although surprisingly it seems to brighten on the finish, tailing off with nice tannin and red fruit.
Rich vanilla oak texture without overdoing it, a little bit of sweetness with dark berry notes. Black pepper and a hint of clove and mint, with some chocolate and tobacco.
Sumptuous nose of menthol and eucalyptus which carries over into the mouth with grand tannic cherries and an encore of the medicinal eucalyptus on the finish. Damn sophisticated.
Great balanced wine. Spices like cinnamon, chocolate and plenty of light berries. Great tasting. Very drinkable.
