2013 Woodward Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon 'Artist Series' #22

92
"(14.4% alcohol; a blend that includes younger plantings from Champoux vineyard, 1972 vines from Sagemoor, a bit of estate fruit and some grapes from Summit vineyard, just above Seven Hills; aged in 55% new oak): Bright ruby. Very ripe, liqueur-like aromas of cassis and blackberry, bitter chocolate and licorice, plus a slightly roasted, tarry nuance, perhaps from the oak--although this wine was vinified in small stainless steel fermenters. Large-scaled, plush and spicy, conveying lovely floral complexity to the flavors of dark berries, bitter chocolate and licorice. Mott likes the extra depth and texture brought by the addition of some Petit Verdot. This very dry, broad wine finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and no greenness. Still a baby but already impressive."
