Notes from the Winemaker:

Full red color. Nose of crushed coriander, pungent turmeric, plum, toffee and dried cranberry. Palate intially shows dusty earth, with sweet brandied fruit supported by brightness and moderate tannins. A peppery, ginger note plays off a fresh crème brulee character. Will open up with further time in bottle and cellar beautifully for 10 to 15 years.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Dense, powerful and profuse with its ripe cherry, blackberry, dark chocolate and herb aromas and flavors, persisting impressively on the long, expressive finish. Best from 2012 through 2020. 350 cases made." –HS (4/30/2010)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2008 vintage):
"Ripe and spicy, focusing its black cherry, cassis, wet earth and smoke flavors beautifully as they sail over a bed of mildly chewy tannins. Has depth and grace. Best from 2013 through 2018."—H.S. (July 20, 2011)

93 Points & "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2008 vintage):
"A streak of iron and mineral leads, with rich, ripe, dark fruit flavors following. Compact and tannic, this is extremely young. But compressed in the wine are complex streaks of herb and mineral. The tannins are strong and polished."  — P.G.  (7/1/2011)

93 Points & "Editor's Choice" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2007 vintage):
"This 100% Cabernet, from the iconic Klipsun vineyard, has been sourced from the original 1989 planting since the first crop, making Seven Hills Klipsun’s longest standing customer. This offers deep cassis, mineral, and earth flavors, powerful and dense. The Seven Hills style, ordinarily restrained and elegant, suits this vineyard especially well, as it reins in the tendency of Klipsun fruit to go over the top, and become too tannic. This is muscular and deep, but proportionate and detailed."  — P.G.  (9/1/2010) - 91 Points:
“This has very distinctive and stylish notes of cool fruit on the nose. While less herbal than the Seven Hills Cabernet this shares some of that wine’s black fruit tones with added layers of leather, fennel, and sweetly spiced oak tones. In the mouth this is supported as much by it’s fine acid spine as the crisp tannins.  This is still a bit tight and short at this point but with promising dusty, black fruit and spice tones that handle to oak well.”
-Gregory Del Piaz, (December 2, 2009)
