95Jeb Dunnuck

It has a beautiful perfume of cassis and mulberry fruit as well as notes of new leather, lead pencil shavings, exotic flowers, and spice. It's medium to full-bodied on the palate and shows the ripe, supple, seamless style of the vintage nicely.

94The Wine Advocate

Gobs of dark red and black fruit tones sway with delightful complexity, dried herbs and oak essence... Full-bodied, the wine is precise, focused and impeccably balanced with a long textured finish that begs me back for another sip.

93James Suckling

A black-fruited nose with notes of bark, bramble and charcoal. Full-bodied with fine, tight tannins. Vanilla and cedar coat the palate with a milk-chocolate finish. Very good concentration with sleek balance.

92Wine Enthusiast

This wine is made in a ripe, luscious style. Aromas of bittersweet chocolate, dried cherry, licorice, baking spice and blackberry are followed by full-bodied flavors. Polished tannins support it all. Fruit and barrel intertwine throughout. The finish lingers. It shows a lot of richness and class.


Woodward Canyon

Woodward Canyon is in Walla Walla. It was started in 1981 by Rick Small and his wife Darcey Fugman-Small. The estate makes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling, Barbera and other wines. Woodward canyon owns 42 acres of vineyards near Lowden, Washington, and also sources grapes from Washington vineyards. The estate produces about 15,000 cases annually, which includes about 7,000 cases of Nelms Road wines. Nelms Road is the estate’s second label.


United States, Washington, Columbia Valley

Columbia Valley AVA is larger than some states. At 18,000 square miles, or 11 million acres, the appellation covers almost half of Washington State and a small part of Oregon on the south side of the Columbia River. Established in 1984, Columbia Valley contains numerous sub appellations within its boundaries, including Yakima Valley AVA and Walla Walla AVA, both large and important wine districts. Columbia Valley AVA, generally called the Columbia Basin by Pacific Northwesterners, is in the Columbia River Plateau, and the AVA also includes a section of northeastern Oregon. There are dozens of microclimates within this appellation of about 7,000 vineyard acres. Many kinds of grapes are grown in the Columbia Valley, though the principal grapes planted are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling, Syrah, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. Eastern Washington experiences very hot summers and cold winters, and the northern latitude means that Washington vineyards receive several more hours of sun in the summer than California vineyards. Grapes in Washington therefore have time to develop significant tannins and overall ripeness.


Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
