Woodward Canyon Nelms Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

America, Washington
Woodward Canyon Nelms Road Cabernet Sauvignon

This new bottling of Nelms Road Cabernet Sauvignon, albeit less due to the smaller crop, reflects the 2017 vintage well. The younger vines from select vineyards continue to produce better grapes allowing us to produce better wine nearly every year. Add to that some truly phenomenal press wine from some of the oldest and most celebrated vineyards in Washington State, and we can produce exceptional cabernet sauvignon at a very impressive price.
The near perfect growing conditions of 2017 gave enticing aromas of currents, black olive, spices, tobacco, and graphite. The wine is dark red in color. In the mouth the wine offers savory black fruits, mature tannins, beautiful texture and a long generous finish.
This red wine would be fantastic with pizza, pasta dishes, roasted meats and aged cheese.

Winery Description

Owner and winemaker Rick Small’s family has been farming the same land where Woodward Canyon’s vineyards now lie for three generations. Rick first planted vineyards here in the late 1970’s, and Woodward Canyon was the second winery to be established in the Walla Walla appellation in 1981, after Leonetti. With deep roots in the land, Rick Small is one of a handful of the Washington wine industry’s ‘elder statesmen’ that have devoted their lives to producing some of the world’s finest wines in Washington. Woodward Canyon wines express the passion and intensity of Rick Small’s devotion to his work - he personally oversees the crafting of each of his wines from vine to bottle. Painstaking effort is taken in each step of the winemaking process, from canopy and irrigation management in the vineyard to ageing oak in order to make his own barrels at the winery. Rick’s vision for his wine has always been quality over quantity, and his enduring reputation as one of Washington’s finest winemakers is testament to his success. Woodward Canyon wines are never fined nor filtered and are always expertly handcrafted. Rick Small’s intimate knowledge of the land and passion for quality can be tasted in every glass.
