Woodward Canyon Merlot 2018

5 units available online.
Product description
Woodward Canyon Winery, named for the canyon Rick's family farmed and where the Estate Vineyard is now located, was established in 1981 by Rick Small and his wife, Darcey Fugman-Small. Woodward Canyon was the second winery in the Walla Walla Valley and the Smalls were instrumental in the process of obtaining federal approval for the Walla Walla Valley appellation. The winery has consistently produced premium, age-worthy, award-winning Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots as well as Chardonnays. From the outset, Rick determined that quality would take precedence over quantity. Consequently, Woodward Canyon has remained small. Woodward Canyon is located in Lowden in the Walla Walla Valley appellation. The tasting room is a restored 1870s farmhouse.

This wine is still settling into its skin. The aromas initially bring notes of freshly mortared green herbs, cherry and raspberry. Silky flavours follow with plenty of tannic heft. The stuffing is all there, but it needs time to come into its own. But when it does? WOW!
