Woodward Canyon Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
Cabernet Sauvignon from Walla Walla Valley, Columbia Valley, Washington
"Rich, ripe and generous, beautifully layered with blackberry, black cherry and plum, plus spice, chocolate and almost peachlike overtones, it all lingers on the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2007."

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.
