Conc: This wine was pretty damn good even tho it may have come across as one dimensional on the palate it DID it well, and had so much structure that it was very very enjoyable, I'd buy again for suree
Not decanted. I think this would actually benefit from another year or two. The aromatics were very nice, pretty, with rose-tinged cherry. The wine really tightened up after nearly an hour in the glass, but still let forth some of the suave yet focused and vibrant fruit that I think characterizes so much of what Woodward Canyon does best.
