This wine has a beautiful nose that leads with alpine flowers and sweet herbs, before leading into more traditional fruit notes of red currant, plum, and blackberry, with hints of anise on the finish. This 100% Cab is large-scaled on the palate, echoing the nose with plum reduction, currant, exotic flower and crushed rock notes. As usual, this wine combines the powerful structure of Pepper Bridge with the finesse from Seven Hills. Give this a few years in the cellar or decant, otherwise it will be drinking beautifully in 5-15 years.
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
67% Seven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Pepper Bridge Cabernet Sauvignon
Aging: 60% new French oak
"The deep purple-colored 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley (100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Seven Hills and Pepper Bridge Vineyards) boasts a rocking bouquet of red and black currants, cigar wrapper, and earthy tobacco aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, with plenty of tannins and terrific purity, it’s going to drink nicely right out of the gate."
