Seven Falls Cellars 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Wahluke Slope, $20

seven-falls-cabGrapes from the Wahluke Slope went into this Cabernet Sauvignon from Seven Falls Cellars, one of the many pearls in Chateau Ste. Michelle’s string of wineries. Still primarily a restaurant pour, its stellar consistency in the hands of winemaker Doug Gore has made it highly coveted. Its nose promises deep black cherry fruit and spice, and in the mouth it delivers more cherries, blackberry, blueberry and grippy tannins. This earned a double gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
