Seven Falls 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Wahluke Slope, $15
Best Buy! This is the best of the three wines under this new label from winemaker Doug Gore and Ste. Michelle Wine Estates. It is a smooth, supple red that is eminently approachable in its youth and priced to enjoy any night of the week. It opens with aromas of ripe raspberry, Belgian chocolate and black licorice. On the palate, it unveils plush, delicious flavors of boysenberry, black pepper, ripe plum and dark chocolate. Moderate tannins provide plenty of intensity on the entry and ample structure throughout. This is the kind of gentle and approachable yet firm Cabernet Sauvignons we’ve come to expect from Wahluke Slope grapes.
Production: 22,000 cases
