Woodward Canyon Nelms Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

America, Washington

The warm growing conditions of 2019 gave enticing aromas of black fruits, olive, spices, tobacco, and lead pencil. Deep red in color and in the mouth the wine offers savory blackberry fruit, mature tannins, old world texture and a long generous finish. The wine is in brilliant proportion and is made to be consumed now. However, with proper storage this wine should easily age five years or longer. This wine would be fantastic with French brasserie style onglet steak au poivre.

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.
