Though it's the least expensive of Seven Hills' four Cabernets, this wine is just a step behind the others. There is good concentration in the color and in the nose, with cassis fruit pushing through a tight, compact structure. Fine balance with firm acids and some interesting mineral flavors, plus a hint of coffee in the finish. Editors' Choice.
