"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. —S.S."

"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. 3,250 cases made."

"(14.8% alcohol; the core of the blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon from Champoux; aged almost entirely in French oak, 50% new): Bright medium ruby. Sexy, aromatic nose offers scents of blueberry, mocha, espresso, licorice and woodsmoke, plus a whiff of Cabernet Franc leafiness. Dark fruit and spice flavors show a plush texture and a complicating element of exotic oak. This very rich wine will need some time to absorb its baby fat. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and excellent but not outstanding length. Winemaker Kevin Mott, who uses a lot of Taransaud barrels for mid-palate texture, along with Boutes Grande Reserve and St. Martin's Tronçais-Jupille blend, insists that this wine's woodsmoke element is not from its oak."

Woodward Canyon Winery

VARIETAL COMPOSTION: 92% cabernet sauvignon, 6% cabernet franc, 2% petit verdot

VINIFICATION: All grapes are harvested by hand, sorted and de-stemmed. This Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented in small stainless steel tanks and is punched down or pumped over twice a day.

AGING: Aging in French Chateaux barrels has produced a well proportioned, complex and generous red wine. The winery has consciously chosen to use slightly less new French oak as these vineyards have gotten older; thus allowing the wine to express varietal typicity and a very distinct sense of place.

This “Artist Series” Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from many of the finest and most highly regarded vineyards in Washington State. Each produces fantastic wine in their own right; when blended they produce extraordinary wine.
