Spottswoode

For more than twenty years, we have been committed to translating our grapes into a Cabernet that embodies the unique characteristics of the Spottswoode estate. Our commitment to honoring our vineyard yields an Estate Cabernet Sauvignon that consistently exudes elegant power, effusive blackberry fruit and spice, naturally refined tannins, and extraordinary color. It is lush and expressive in its youth and continues to evolve beautifully over time.

Wine Advocate

Another outstanding example from this consistently high quality performer, Spottswoode's 1995 stood out in my barrel tasting as one of the strongest efforts of the vintage. Although tightly wound, it exhibits an opaque purple color, and a tight but gorgeous nose of blackcurrants, vanilla, minerals, and a touch of smoke and blueberries. Medium to full-bodied and impeccably well-balanced, this wine's structural components (acidity, alcohol, and tannin) are beautifully meshed together with the lavishly rich fruit that is presented in a medium to full-bodied format. This should turn out to be a textbook, classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that admirably balances elegance and power. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2015. (Tasted in barrel.)

Score: 92-95. —Robert Parker, June 1997.

Wine Spectator

A complex web of mature currant, cedar, mocha and plum are ripe and vibrant, with a hint of wild berry jam peeking through on the finish. Impressive for its balance and integration of tannins, which are supple.

Score: 92. —James Laube, 2005.

International Wine Cellar

Deep ruby-red. Floral, cool aromas of boysenberry, violet and mint. Intense, penetrating dark berry and licorice flavors are given definition by a strong acid spine. Quite tightly wrapped today and beginning to shut down. Lingering, subtle berry flavors on the finish. This cabernet will age as much on its acids as on its tannins. 91 points.

Score: 91. —Stephen Tanzer, December 1998.
