2007 Woodward Canyon Merlot
We have long been fans of Woodward Canyon and in our books, it is one of the most consistently terrific wines out there. This offering of theirs is no different. Medium red in colour, the initial aromatics are black cherry, wood, pepper, and a hint of coffee. Secondary notes of plum, mint and vanilla round off this beautifully complex wine. A “cab-lover’s Merlot” this is a full-bodied wine that has a terrific structure keeping everything in balance with a ridiculously long finish. Another winner from one of our favourite Washington wineries.
