Special wine series to benefit children's hospital


Woodward Canyon’s 2010 Artist Series wine promises lingering notes on the palate as well as the heart.

The Lowden winery is dedicating a portion of sales of its flagship wine to Seattle Children’s Hospital to support children living with cystic fibrosis. The wine, a cabernet sauvignon, retails for $54 a bottle.

A few details about the Artist Series: Woodward Canyon purchases an original piece of artwork for each vintage of the flagship wine and features the art on the label. The latest was purchased by winery owners Rick Small and Darcey Fugman-Small at the Auction of Washington Wines, a fundraiser for Seattle Children’s Hospital. The art features 65 handmade paper roses as a dedication to those living with cystic fibrosis.

The piece is credited to artist Taras Lesko and Friends, including the Cramer Family, whose two children, Christalin and Josiah, live with cystic fibrosis and are treated at the hospital, the announcement explained.

The wine itself is described as having aromas of black fruit and cassis, enticing nose of the earth, cedar and tobacco and finishes with notes of pepper, herbs, berries and altruism. For details on purchasing, call Nichole Whitchurch at 525-4129 or email: getthedirt@woodwardcanyon.com.
