2012 Woodward Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vines
"DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL: Proprietor Rick Small skipped the 2010 vintage of his Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon; it was the first time he hadn't bottled his reserve-level Cab since launching Woodward Canyon in 1981. He did it because he didn't think the wine was quite good enough. That's a move that takes guts and integrity - qualities that define Small's character. This new release from Woodward Canyon is a stunner that should make Small and winemaker Kevin Mott proud. It opens with aromas of sweet spices, cherry pipe tobacco and ripe boysenberry. On the palate, it reveals flavors of black cherry, plum sauce and sautéed mushrooms. It is impeccably balanced through the lengthy and memorable finish."
