K&L Notes

Seven Hills has long been one of our favorite Washington producers here at K&L and one of my personal faves for about as long as I've been in this business. This first generation Washington winery has made great wines, seemingly continuously, since it's founding in 1988 in all price points and from all varietals. But I truly believe that Bordeaux varietals are where they shine. A perfect example of how it can make amazing value driven wines is the 2013 Seven Hills Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This masculine, nearly bombastic, wine completely over delivers and may be the best Cabernet in the store right now for its new $20 price point. (Bryan Brick, K&L)

    For the lover of well-balanced, smoky cabs, this value from Washington had much more going for it than I had anticipated. The strawberry aromas are balanced by stewed black cherry and a dry woodiness. The palate shows plums, cocoa, and baking spices accompanied by a lingering finish. Grab two bottles: one while you cook the roast beef and the second to pair.

    Seven Hills has delivered a wine that packs way more punch than it's $20 price tag. Expressive aromas of black berry fruit and oak spices hint at the power of this vintage. Black currant and fresh raspberry fruits, black tea, graphite follow, with a lovely acidity and healthy dose of tanin to wrap up the entire package. This 2013 Cabernet should easily last a decade!

    Densely centered on the nose and filled with India ink, charred beef, brooding blackberry fruit and warm spiced oak aromas, this is a rarely found in a wine of this price point. Full bodied with pretty olive, laurel and tarragon flavors on the entry, this has fanned out with sometime in the bottle and has a nice lushness and fruit concentration. Powerful with plenty of hallmark Columbia Valley extraction and sheer fruit power this builds on its typically tannic frame and adds layers of Mexican chocolate and mocha on the packed and young finish. As I tasted this all I could think about is how much more expensive it would be if it came from Napa Valley. Thanks Washington!

    This 2013 Cab from Seven Hills is a big, rich red that that’s a killer value and shouldn’t be missed! Expressive notes of pomegranate, raspberry, ripe plum, cinnamon and coffee show on the nose and have underlying earth and herbal notes. The finish is long and lingering with big tannin and balanced well with oak.

    Last years vintage of this was one of my favorite go to wines for people looking for serious cab that was not going to cost them $50-$100. Having just tasted the new vintage I can continue to strongly recommend them to anyone seeking good Cabernet. The 2013 vintage is a big, structured vintage with good fruit and chewy tannins. Although this wine is drinking well now, this is one that will age exceptionally well, or needs some decanting time. Drinking a cab with this much length and structure it is almost a shock when I remember that it is $20.

    This is a stellar deal! This Cabernet Sauvignon embodies the terrior and wine making style of Columbia Valley. The nose is loaded with dark berries, pomegranate, and fresh white flowers. Big opulent fruit and powerful earthy tannin makes this perfect for any Cabernet lover. Soft integrated cedar notes help lift the dark fruit and add to this complex wine. For a $20 wine, there is a lot going on in the glass, a real bargain.
