Woodward Canyon Winery 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla Valley, $49

By on April 22, 2015

woodward-canyon-winery-cabernet-sauvignon-2012-bottleRick Small’s Salmon-Safe vineyard was groomed to 2.8 tons per acre and longtime winemaker Kevin Mott blended the Clone 4 Cabernet Sauvignon with Clone 6 fruit (20%) from the spectacular 2012 vintage for a dark and dense expression. Aromas of huckleberry, blueberry and black cherry are joined by hints of bittersweet chocolate, cardamom and minerality. The palate is loaded with more cherry and dark chocolate, backed by blueberry skin tannins and pomegranate juicy combine for a long finish that shows no sign of heat.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 120 cases

Alcohol: 15.6%
