2012 Woodward Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series #21

November 9, 2016

 

Enjoyed this wine at home after staying up way too late the night before watching the election (and getting 3 1/2 hours of sleep because of that).  Served with a very simple dinner of seared rare prime filet mignon (didn't have time to sous vide the steak even) with a side caesar salad. Smooth, nuanced flavors. Earthy, leathery, yet w sweet fresh fig notes. Still reasonably astringent, but the acid fades after the early palate. Good, well balanced, although may turn flabby in next 5 years. Will gain some nuance, but you'll have to catch it before the backbone goes away. Drink over next 2-3 years.  90 points.
