Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This intense ruby wine begins with savory aromas of tobacco, cigar box, olive, and lead pencil, followed by blackberry and currant. In the mouth, mature black fruits, baking spices, and culinary herbs develop. The balanced tannin structure leaves you with a smooth, lingering finish. This wine will age quite well for a decade with proper cellaring.
95 POINTS, Vinous: The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Clone 191 is the second edition of this wine. A 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that exudes class with its beautiful bouquet of mocha, creosote, black currants, blueberry compote, and walnut undertones. The palate is silky and soft with a voluptuous mouthfeel. Layers of beautiful blue and black fruits collide with the sagebrush and menthol underpinnings. This has an exceedingly long life ahead of it. Drinking window: 2021 - 2041 -Owen Bargreen. Tasting date: October 2021. 92 POINTS - Jeb Dunnuck: The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 191 is a pretty, floral, cedary, and red-fruited effort that has medium-bodied richness, soft, round tannins, beautiful balance, and a great finish. It's another impeccably made wine in the lineup.
Vineyard Notes
Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard Planted in 1977, Woodward Canyon is the westernmost vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley AVA, roughly 15 miles west of Walla Walla, Washington. There are 41 vineyard acres planted and several more acres of green belts that support native species such as western juniper, ponderosa pine, western sagebrush, arrowleaf, balsamroot, and perennial wildflowers. Ritzville silt loam over fractured basalt, slope 15-18%, 750-850ft elevation. Managed by Woodward Canyon. All grapes are Salmon Safe certified, as is the wine. Clone 191: 2.23 acres on 3’x9’ spacing, planted on rootstock in 2011 at 850’ elevation (our highest elevation Cabernet Sauvignon block); among the highest-rated clones in Bordeaux, France The plant material for this clone was originally sourced from Bordeaux, and came to the US through the ENTAV program in France; we sourced our material from a certified nursery in California. Observation from Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard: Slightly smaller cluster and smaller berry size; stunning cassis - black fruit character with great balance at lower levels of ripeness. We’re incredibly optimistic about this clone!
