Woodward Canyon Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Member Review by Christy Canterbury MW:

Almost entirely Cabernet, this juice comes from some of Washington’s oldest vines. The color shows an inky concentration and the tannins are broad-shouldered. The nose is highly perfumed with coffee grinds, dark chocolate, blueberries, black plum and cassis.

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

I purchase a half of a case of this wine in the fall of 2007, after tasting it in the winery tasting room. We have kept it in our cave for the past 13 months. We opened the first bottle tonight and were very disappointed. The wine did not improved after several hours in the decanter. I can only hope the bottles of 2007 I just purchased will be better. Perhaps it was just a bad bottle. I will leave the rest in the cave for at least another year and hope for the best. DL

Der Old Vine Cabernet wird nur in besonders guten Jahren ausgeschieden und separat abgefüllt. Das Lesgut stammt aus den in den 70ern angelegten Sagemoor und Champoux Rebbergen. Der Wein wurde während 22 Monaten in französischer Eiche ausgebaut. Die Farbe ist ein sattes Purpur. Rauchige Noten, Gewürz, Kaffe, Brombeeren. Der Wein ist extrem dicht und komplex.

Dark dense and rich with blackberry black currant and cherry flavors shaded with hints of spice and cedar as the flavors sink gently into a plush texture. 3151 cases made. (HS) Wine Press Northwest Another wonderful wine from one of America's great winemakers. This excellent effort will be appreciated for its toasty oak and vanilla aromas loaded with black fruit tar cherries chocolate leather and more. Drink now or hold dearly.Northwest Palate Dark garnet color. Cassis and ripe black fruit aromas with a faint herbal/mint note. Mouthfilling flavors of ripe black fruits cassis and chocolaty barrel toast balance a warm and tannic finish. Long fruit finish but cellar 3-5 additional complexity and integration. Highly recommended. The Wine Enthusiast.
