Winemaker's Notes:

We've made Viognier from Talcott Vineyard for a number of years, and are very happy with the balance and varietal character the site offers. 2009 was a bit warmer than normal, with near average yields. I think of this wine as a "peach danish" in a glass: Sweet ripe peach, toasty creamy notes and beautifully soft and accessible. Light smoky and honeysuckle notes round out the aromas and flavors. Citrus takes a back seat to the stone fruits this vintage. This wine really reaches out to you in all regards: color, aroma, and palate.

About Seven Hills Winery:

The McClellan family has farmed in Eastern Washington since 1880. One hundred years later, in 1980, Casey McClellan and his father Jim began planting the now famous Seven Hills Vineyard at the south end of the Walla Walla Valley. After then earning his Master’s degree in Enology from UC Davis, Casey returned to Walla Walla with his wife Vicky to found Seven Hills Winery, the fifth winery in the Walla Walla Valley, in 1988. Casey remains Seven Hills’ sole winemaker to this day.

Seven Hills Vineyard is now regarded as one of the “ten most important vineyards in the world” by Wine & Spirits Magazine. In addition to Seven Hills Vineyard, Casey crafts wines from several of the best, old vine vineyards in Walla Walla and on Red Mountain, including Ciel du Cheval, Klipsun, and McClellan Estate.

Casey’ focus has always been on Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux varietal reds, complimented by limited production of Alsatian varietal white wines. His vision is to produce wines that reflect the terroir of these sites with intense structure and pure varietal fruit character capable of graceful ageing.
