    Winemaker's Notes:

    The "Old Vines" Cabernet originally started as the "Dedication Series" with the start of the winery in 1981. The label features a pioneer of the Walla Walla Valley and the wine is now sourced primarily from Champoux Vineyard, which is home to some of the oldest cabernet blocks in the state of Washington. This is a heavier-bodied cabernet and will typically age well, with proper cellar conditions, 15+ years from vintage.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vines is the 25th anniversary of this wine. The gentleman on the label is A.P. Woodward after whom this parcel of real estate takes its name and it will remain as the permanent label in future vintages. The wine is 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot with the Cabernet sourced from Sagemoor and Champoux Vineyards planted in the early 1970s, about as old as you will find in Washington. It was aged for 22 months in new French oak. A saturated purple color, it offers up a super-fragrant perfume of wood smoke, spice box, incense, espresso, black currant, and blackberry. Burly, muscular, and full-bodied on the palate, the wine has superb density, incipient complexity, and layers of savory fruit. There is enough structure to support a decade of cellaring and it should be at its best from 2017 to 2036.
