One of Walla Walla's pioneering wineries, Seven Hills has delivered excellent wines for three decades, all the while keeping their prices fair, if not downright modest. Our recent tastings showed that they're at the top of their game, with dynamite Cabernet and Merlot. Do not miss their old vine, Wine Spectator 94-point Seven Hills Vineyard Cab!
94 points Wine Spectator: "Dynamic and multilayered, with polished blackberry, crushed stone and licorice flavors that build momentum toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2026. 400 cases made."
91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Starting with the 2016 Merlot Walla Walla Valley (there's 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc), it offers a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of blueberries, plums, spicy wood, and leafy herbs. It's juicy, medium-bodied, balanced, and a smoking value.
