Woodward Canyon Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Woodward Canyon Artist Series began in 1992 with the intent to showcase the finest cabernet sauvignon in Washington State and has since become our flagship wine. The vineyards used in the Artist Series are among the oldest and most highly regarded in the state, typical vine age is around 35 years old. The label changes every year with work from a different West Coast artist. Dr. Owen Bargreen met with Owner, Rick Small and Winemaker, Kevin Mott for a comprehensive vertical tasting of the Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon lineup starting with the 1992 vintage.

Vitruvius was a Roman architect and engineer during the 1st century BC, known for his multi-volume work entitled De architectura. He originated the idea that all buildings should have three attributes: firmitas, utilitas and venustas. These principles were later widely adopted in Roman architecture.
