Bringing this one up to your nose you get a burst of menthol. Great dark dense color. Wonderful red and black fruit medley with some secondaries of lead, mushroom and soy. A seamless tannin level and great structure. A very feminine cabernet, but more like a female bodybuilder than a ballet dancer. A long graceful finish closed the deal nicely.

The medium-bodied 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon displays some of the attractive gravelly notes often found in this wine, along with black currant fruit, lavender, subtle oak, sweet tannin for the vintage, and a well-balanced, pure finish... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1996 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

This somewhat underrated vintage has rounded a corner and become awfully inviting. We uncovered ripe strawberry and blackberry notes, plus cookie dough, graham cracker, maple, cream cheese, and a hint of hibiscus. The sweet fruit characters are balanced by wonderful acidity and delicacy, with integrated tannins and a dash of spice. Linda summed this wine up perfectly, “Charming!”
