Woodward Canyon 'Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine itself is a lovely deep, inky purple at the center that melds into a bright ruby along the edges. The nose just seems to grab you by the collar and really let's you know that you're about to sip something truly sublime, with rich black fruit notes, leather and cedar all dancing in your mind. The taste is wonderfully complex, with some bright fruit at the outset, blackberry, cassis that transitions effortlessly to some warm spice notes of black pepper and dried herbs. The finish is divine, as the tannins are nicely structured and integrated to support a wonderfully complex finish that seems to last forever.

Located in the Walla Walla Valley appellation of Washington State, Woodward Canyon Winery was started in 1981 by Rick Small and his wife, Darcey Fugman-Small. Since that time, the winery has consistently produced premium, award-winning cabernet sauvignons and merlots as well as chardonnays. Early on Rick determined that quality would take precedence over quantity. Consequently, Woodward Canyon has remained small, increasing its production from 1,200 cases in 1981 to our current production of about 17,000 cases. About 7,000 of this total production is Nelms Road, Woodward Canyon's second label. Click here to read more about Nelms Road. Woodward Canyon is a founding member of the Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance and of Walla Walla Valley Vinea, the Winegrower's Sustainable Trust. Woodward Canyon Winery is located in Lowden, about 13 miles west of Walla Walla, Washington. Our tasting room is a restored 1870's farmhouse. Read less

Thick, ripe and richly endowed, it keeps its black fruit, ripe tannins and liquorous barrel notes all in proportion, and pulls in top ight fruit from Champoux, Sagemoor, the estate vineyard and other select sites. Earth, cedar and tobacco notes.

Firm and round, with black cherry and herb flavors galore, which echo nicely on the finish, picking up hints of cedar and spice. Drink now through 2006.

An intense, deeply extracted wine with a powerful bouquet of blackberry jam, red-fruit preserves, and plenty of new oak. This wine screams ldquo;Drink me!rdquo; from the first sniff. Itrsquo;s an 18-wheeler running down a steep grade. It explodes on the palate with a cloudburst of fruit, chocolate, smoke and oak, descending via soft, smooth tannins into a ripe, seductive, extened finish.

Comes on like the big dog it is, with powerful scents of brash berries, cassis and smoky oak. Meaty, big and bouncy (apologies to The Who) this is a flavor-laden explosion of power and grace. Still young and relatively tight, this is a polished, textured wine with immense potential over the next decade.

Production from the Canoe Ridge, Champoux, Sagemoor and Pepper Ridge vineyards has created the finest Artist Series Cabernet yet! The 1998 vintage was warm, and this 100% Cabernet reflects it. This is a pure expression of fully mature Washington Cabernet Sauvignon mdash; rich with black fruit, cassis, vanilla and spice. The wine is dense, concentrated and rich.
