Spottswoode Cab.Sav 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

This showstopper seems to have drawn in a bit. Beth called it serious and contemplative—Rodin’s, The Thinker. Deep, layered, and complex. Black cherry, cassis, tar, violet liqueur, anise seed, and a hint of fig. The ripe aspect has toned down a bit, and we suspect this wine has entered a sleeper faze, but we know it will re-emerge as bold and beautiful as ever—and we cannot wait until it does!

Spottswoode is a family-owned historic vineyard and winery renowned for its exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Established in 1882 by George Schonewald, the estate is distinguished by the historic Victorian home depicted on the Spottswoode label. Spottswoode was christened by Mrs. Albert Spotts, who owned the property from 1910 until its purchase in 1972 by Mary Weber Novak and her late husband, Dr. Jack Novak. The first Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon was produced in 1982, exactly one hundred years after the estate’s founding. Today, two of Mary’s daughters, Beth and Lindy, work for the family winery that each year releases four very special wines: the Spottswoode Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon and the recently-introduced Field Book Rhone. The Novak family is committed to producing wines that faithfully reflect their grape origins. Each Spottswoode wine is known for its refined elegance, balance, and classic structure. Dedicated stewards of their property, the Novaks have farmed organically since 1985 and have pioneered the restoration of their local watershed. Read less
