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.

Current Artist: Anna Brones
2019 ARTIST SERIES #28, "Vineyard Flowers", 9" x 12", Anna Brones, Salish Sea, WA. Anna Brones is a writer, artist, and producer based in the South Puget Sound. She is the author of several books including Fika the Art of the Swedish Coffee Break and Live Lagom: Balanced Living the Swedish Way. She works as a papercut artist, hand-cutting illustrations from single pieces of paper and regularly teaches classes and workshops on art and creativity. Anna loves working with natural forms and elements, and particularly anything from her local Pacific Northwest environment. For the 2019 “Artist Series” Cabernet Sauvignon label, Anna took inspiration from some of the native plants present in the Woodward Canyon Vineyard. When we think of wine, many of us think first and foremost of grapes. But there's always so much more at play in a vineyard, and all of the flora and fauna present are part of a larger, interconnected ecosystem and cycle. This artwork is made to celebrate that vibrant environment. The papercut is a compilation of an abundance of arrowleaf, balsamroot and blanket flowers, brought to life by watercolor painted behind the papercut.
