2001 Woodward Canyon Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon
Extremely dark in color and a gorgous bouquet of blackberry, oak, dark chocolate, and cedar-spice, followed by intense and chewy flavors of blackberry, cassis, vanilla, oak, and mocha. The finish is nice and extended and leaves you tasting the wine for at least 30-60 seconds. Extremely impressed with the effort and as always I'm not surprised that a Cabernet of this quality is from Washington state. Columbia Valley Washington is producing some of the best domestic Cabernet Sauvignon on the market. I score the wine 90+ points.
