Winemaker's Notes:

Flavors of raspberry and cassis have married beautifully with spicy, toasted oak and vanilla to produce a profound red wine. The color is deeply purple with concentrated flavors and a delightfully soft finish. While this wine may be consumed now, it will benefit from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should age for ten years or more.

Alcohol: 14% by volume

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.
