Description

Woodward Canyon 2014 Artist Series #23 Cabernet Sauvignon
92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot | Alc: 14.8% – Big and Bold
Columbia Valley, Washington

Winemaker’s notes:
This enticing and deeply colored red wine shows a complex nose of baking spice, black olive and graham integrated beautifully with aromas of ripe black fruits.  In the mouth the wine is rich and elegant, showing subtle notes of herb and black berry.  Integrated tannins enhance the texture and give proportion; the finish is complex, generous, and long.  While this wine can be enjoyed now it will benefit greatly from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should develop for ten years or more.

Critical Acclaim:
“Rocking notes of spice, incense, black raspberries and dried flowers all emerge from the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series (92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot), and it’s a complex, nuanced, impeccably balanced beauty! With medium to full-bodied richness, no hard edges and notable purity, drink it anytime over the coming decade or more.” 92 Pts – The Wine Adcvovate

“Well-built, with a firm backbone wrapped in rich and expressive notes of blackberry, green olive and clove, lingering toward big but refined tannins. Drink now through 2025. “ 92 Pts – Wine Spectator

“Fruit for this wine comes from top sites Champoux, Sagemoor, Woodward Canyon Estate and Summit View vineyards. It brings classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of black currant, black cherry and herbs along with generous barrel spices. The black-fruit and coffee flavors are lush and full, bringing a real sense of hedonism and delight.” 93 Pts – Wine Enthusiast
