Spottswoode Cabernet 1997
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.
Editorial Reviews for Spottswoode Cabernet
Woody and volatile on the nose with minty, toasty aromas and not much fruit. Tactile in the mouth, thick, soft and a bit hot but packed with the soft, broad fruit that has become the standard for Napa Valley. The fruit is really sticky and it clings to the mouth on the long finish but there is very little detail or complexity here. There’s no acid to refresh the finish. 83pts
