Woodward Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series 2005

External Review by Morrell & Company:

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon – Artist Series also contains 1% Cabernet Franc. and is a blend from five of the top vineyards in the state. It was aged predominantly in new French oak for 20 months. The wine is opaque purple-colored with a fragrant bouquet of pain grille, spice box, black cherry and black currants. It is full-bodied with a supple palate-feel, oodles of sweet fruit, and ripe tannins. This impressive effort manages to combine power and elegance. It will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and drink well through 2030.

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

Earth and tobacco flavors weave through the chunky cherry and black tea character, making this more savory than most. Yet has the structure to age. Definitely worth cellaring. Best after 2010. 2,866 cases made. -HS Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Washington in USA. 2005 Woodward Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series #14 750ml
