While it’s one of the most unassuming-looking bottles of wine produced by a Walla Walla Valley producer, Woodward Canyon’s Left Bank Bordeaux-style red blend ranks among the cult wines offered each year. The Cabernet Sauvignon (67%) and Merlot came from Mickey Witherspoon’s Charbonneau Vineyard overlooking the Snake River, while the Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard contributed the Petit Verdot (7%). Kevin Mott blended them into a classic Washington red that offers hints of ripe Damson plum and Van cherry with milk chocolate, moist coconut and white pepper amid a round and balanced structure of fully resolved tannins.
