College Cellars 2013 Summit View Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla Valley, $35

college-summit-chardThe wine program at Walla Walla Valley Community College has become renowned for producing talented winemakers. And its College Cellars is building a record of producing fine wines as well. Its 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Summit View Vineyard – a young, 2,000-foot elevation site that’s loftier than Seven Hills Vineyard – extends that string by showing off black cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors, plus a touch of graphite and tannins with the bite of blueberry skin. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 65 cases
