35. Seven Falls 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Wahluke Slope, $15

SVF_CabS_FLThis inexpensive, restaurant-only Cab from the folks at Columbia Crest earned best of show at the Great Northwest Invite a year ago (for the 2010 vintage). The 2012 is off to a fast start with another gold medal this year. Aromas of dark-roast espresso, dark chocolate, black olive, black pepper and ripe berry lead to plush, approachable flavors of chocolate-covered espresso beans, blackberry jam and ripe raspberry. This reveals the lush, delicious flavors indicative of the warm Wahluke Slope.
