Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

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.

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

Cool and layered on the nose with black cherry fruit accented by notes of leather, blood, and a toasty oak underlay. With time this gains mint and gentle floral top notes. Clean and fresh in the mouth with clarity and purity to the core of liquory wild cherry fruit. Menthol top notes add some complexity and earth and wood spice tones on the moderately long finish complete the package. This is youthful, balanced and fresh with several years of upside ahead. Really a very attractive wine. 93pts

...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 ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1995 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 1500ml
