Friday, fully three weeks into Washington Wine Month, with a curry dinner at home.  We raided one of the cases we have set aside as we needed a pretty big wine to pair with dinner: Seven Hills Winery 2010 Ciel du Cheval, a bold Bordeaux-style red.  Have you noticed that most of our wines are from Walla Walla?  We spent quite a bit of time there last summer and fall.  Seven Hills is still our only membership since we like to purchase as we travel (other places) too.

Knowing this is a long-term cellar wine we opened to bottle in great anticipation; it has only been with us only about four months.  Pepper, plums, and a summer’s worth of berries greeted us.  So flavorful! The tannins weren’t too harsh, which was my concern.
