Winemaker's Notes:

"Comes on like the big dog it is, with powerful scents of brash berries, cassis and smoky oak. Meaty, big and bouncy (apologies to the Who) this is a flavor-laden explosion of power and grace. Still young and relatively tight, this is a polished, textured wine with immense potential over the next decade."
-Wine Enthusiast
My Notes:

About Woodward Canyon:

Woodward Canyon Winery was founded by Rick Small in 1981. He is currently soul-searching on the subject of terroir. Debating the suitability of certain varietals to certain vineyard plots has become a quandary. On the one hand, the grapes growing there do fine and are the basis for extremely successful wines (Chardonnay, mostly); on the other, would Merlot or Cabernet Franc provide even more exciting character? The evolution of the Northwest wine industry continues.
