WE TOP 100 2012 Cellar Selection Rank 78
"Here the high alcohol does not obscure the layered fruits and overall complexity of this exceptional Cabernet. Thick, ripe and richly endowed, it keeps its black fruit, ripe tannins and liquorous barrel notes all in proportion, and pulls in top flight fruit from Champoux, Sagemoor, the estate vineyard and other select sites. Earth, cedar and tobacco notes highlight the extended finish. Cellar Selection."

"This wine has a beautiful nose of spicy oak and cedar integrated with ripe black fruits and cherry. A firm rich mouth feel begins with cassis and black berry leading towards chocolate and mocha. The finish is generous and long. While this wine can be enjoyed now it will definitely benefit from additional cellaring and with proper storage should develop for eight years or more." ~ Winery notes

In 1998, Woodward Canyon also began producing wines under its second label, Nelms Road. Nelms Road offers merlot and cabernet sauvignon and was developed to produce delicious and affordable red wine.

Impressive for the Price

"I uncorked a bottle on Easter and decanted it for an hour before tasting. It is young but opened up nicely with the taste of a First Growth Bordeaux. This is as good as anything coming out of Napa and a steal at $36. I plan to buy another case for storage."
