Winemaker's Notes:

2005 was a moderate vintage producing expressively lush wines. Reliable September weather led to a long ripening period. As with all of Seven Hills' wines the grapes were hand-picked; harvest weather was perfect.

A medium-bodied red of rich color. By nose and mouth it shows black currant and wild berries, sweet spices, white pepper, vanillin , and plum overtones. The diverse vineyard sites show in a pleasing range of flavors and accessible structure.

Polished, gentle tannins and a slight brightness make this an ideal mealtime choice. This Cabernet will benefit from medium-term cellaring.

About Seven Hills Winery:

Seven Hills Winery was established in 1988 to vinify some of the nation's finest wine grapes: those grown in the Walla Walla Valley Appellation. In 1989 we moved to our current facility in Milton-Freewater, on the southern edge of the Appellation. Our winemaking process is a customized, hand-crafted approach that follows the grape from vineyard, through fermentation, aging and bottling, into the marketplace. Our central focus is dedication to providing a memorable wine drinking experience. Limited production may make our wine more difficult to find but always worth the search.
