    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine has an enticing nose of earth, cedar, tobacco and jonquil integrated with aromas of black fruits and cassis. In the mouth the wine is firm but rich showing notes of pepper, herb and berries. Integrated tannins enhance the texture and give proportion; the finish is complex, generous, and long. While this wine can be enjoyed now it will benefit greatly from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should develop for ten years or more.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Here the high alcohol does not obscure the layered fruits and overall complexity of this exceptional Cabernet. Thick, ripe and richly endowed, it keeps its black fruit, ripe tannins and liquorous barrel notes all in proportion, and pulls in top flight fruit from Champoux, Sagemoor, the estate vineyard and other select sites. Earth, cedar and tobacco notes highlight the extended finish. Cellar Selection

    Woodward Canyon's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series – half of which comes from Champoux Vineyard and nearly a third from the estate (the minor lots also hailing from prestigious sites) – is surprisingly able to handle its 15.8% alcohol with only a hint of residual heat. High-toned and inner-mouth floral elements seem to point toward the blend's 15% Cabernet Franc (there being lesser amounts of Merlot and Petit Verdot) in an otherwise round, rich, sweetly dark berry-fruited performance. Hints of macaroon and vanilla from barrel in no way detract from the purity of fruit, nor from the buzzing, tingling sense of energy conveyed in a tenacious yet not at all roughly tannic finish.

    Certainly a step up from the ~$20 Washington State cabs, but it's not at all clear to me that it's worth twice as much. I'm going to stick to comparably priced Napa cabs, which I think show a bit more depth.
