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

...a model of symmetry and grace deftly married with super concentrated blueberry, blackberry, and cassis flavors infused with subtle new wood. This medium to full-bodied, seamless, youthful beauty... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 1500ml


Winemaker's Notes:

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.
