2017 Summit View Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Walla Walla Valley

We have vinified this entire block of Summit View Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon for several years, and are very pleased with the distinctive nature of Clone 191 on the site. It’s a great example of the synergy created by matching the right clone with the right vineyard site.

The wine reveals aromas of warmed cherries and peppercorns with accents of iron and hints of smoky earthiness. The palate offers dense ripe black cherries, cocoa nibs, and hints of vanilla and desert herbs supported by a firm but polished structure.

2017 McClellan Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 McClellan Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Walla Walla Valley

McClellan Estate Vineyard lies at the southern edge of the Walla Walla Valley, adjacent to the founding blocks of our Seven Hills Winery estate vineyard. This vineyard was established by the McClellan family in 2003, employing varietals, clones, trellising systems, and vineyard practices most ideally suited to this specific site.

This wine is a deep garnet color, opening with aromas of ripe blackberries, black tea leaf and cinnamon stick, accented by a touch of fresh herbs. A velvety texture leads to flavors of marionberries, cherries, almonds and a sweet chocolate richness on the finish.

2018 McClellan Estate Vineyard Malbec
Walla Walla Valley

We have been producing Malbec for more than fifteen years, and were the first winery to do so in the Walla Walla Valley. We believe that the southern edge of the valley is one of the rare places in the world where Malbec reaches its full potential, with sufficient heat for ripening coupled with cool nights to preserve aromatics and structure.

The wine is lush, vibrant and brooding, with intense color and warm, sweet fruit. There is an engaging concentration of blueberries and raspberries accented by baking spice that lingers through a persistent finish of cocoa nib framed by velvety tannins.

2018 Malbec

2018 Cabernet Franc

2018 Cabernet Franc
Walla Walla Valley

We’ve worked with Cabernet Franc as a blending varietal for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pentad (our flagship cuvée) for two decades. This bottling comes from McClellan Estate Vineyard and Summit View Vineyard on the south end of the Walla Walla Valley.

The wine captures the varietal character of Cabernet Franc while also expressing the vineyards’ deep silt loam and hillside terroir. This vintage shows a garnet color with a nose of cherries, tobacco leaf and graphite with hints of pink peppercorns and sage. The palate is soft, showing bright cherries, tobacco leaf, dried herbs with soft integrated tannins.

2017 30th Anniversary Vintage Merlot
Walla Walla Valley

We commemorate our 30th vintage with a limited-edition offering that exemplifies our belief that Walla Walla Valley presents Washington’s best expression of Merlot. This wine is crafted from vineyards across the appellation that we feel showcase Merlot at its highest potential, including our estate Seven Hills Winery founding blocks.

This wine delivers aromas of marionberries and black cherries with hints of dried tobacco leaves and vanilla. The palate showcases a medium body with luscious black cherries and figs followed by a lasting finish of dried tobacco leaf and earth with velvety tannins.
