Winemaker Notes

Opens with darker notes of coffee and cocoa, then transcends into black fruits including cherry and plum, with hints of mint, herb and spice. Powerful and bold, it is full and vibrant, with an elegant finish filled with notes of nut and spice.

Critical Acclaim

RP 89
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Aromas of ripe berry fruit and creamy new oak introduce the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Wahluke Slope, a supple, medium to full-bodied red with a textural palate and an ample core of juicy fruit. Seamless and showing no hard edges, it's best consumed in the next year or two.


WS 89
Wine Spectator
Deep and densely structured, with blackberry and spicy herb flavors that build toward broad-shouldered yet refined tannins. Best from 2020 through 2024.

Seven Falls, Washington
Seven Falls Winery Video
Seven Falls was inspired by a series of seven waterfalls that once flowed along the Columbia River through what is now known as the Wahluke Slope. With one of the warmest and driest climates in Washington state, and sandy loam soil in the vineyards, the terroir in this historical region is perfect for creating big, bold wines with outstanding structure.

Many winemakers consider the Wahluke Slope to be the backbone of the Washington wine industry. The Wahluke Slope AVA is one of the state’s driest and warmest grapegrowing regions, allowing nearly complete control of vine vigor and ripening through irrigation. The soils here are uniform over large areas, well drained and course in texture, and made up of gravelly and rocky silt and sand. With such a warm climate and unique soil composition, the Wahluke Slope is known for wines with big flavor and lots of structure.

A large and geographically diverse AVA capable of producing a wide variety of wine styles, the Columbia Valley AVA is home to 99% of Washington state’s total vineyard area. A small section of the AVA even extends into northern Oregon!

Because of its size, it is necessarily divided into several distinctive sub-AVAs, including Walla Walla Valley and Yakima Valley—which are both further split into smaller, noteworthy appellations. A region this size will of course have varied microclimates, but on the whole it experiences extreme winters and long, hot, dry summers. Frost is a common risk during winter and spring. The towering Cascade mountain range creates a rain shadow, keeping the valley relatively rain-free throughout the entire year, necessitating irrigation from the Columbia River. The lack of humidity combined with sandy soils allows for vines to be grown on their own rootstock, as phylloxera is not a serious concern.

Red wines make up the majority of production in the Columbia Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety here, where it produces wines with a pleasant balance of dark fruit and herbs. Wines made from Merlot are typically supple, with sweet red fruit and sometimes a hint of chocolate or mint. Syrah tends to be savory and Old-World-leaning, with a wide range of possible fruit flavors and plenty of spice. The most planted white varieties are Chardonnay and Riesling. These range in style from citrus and green apple dominant in cooler sites, to riper, fleshier wines with stone fruit flavors coming from the warmer vineyards.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
