...Subdued, lightly floral aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry, licorice, mint and spicy oak. Juicy, bright and delineated, with a consistent texture and restrained sweetness. Shows a slight medicinal austerity. Not a particularly rich vintage but... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1998 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1998 release of Cabernet Sauvignon from Spottswoode is another classic reflection of our estate vineyard. This wine is friendly and quite approachable with all of the aromas and flavors that are characteristic of Spottswoode - blueberry, blackberry, plum, cassis and molasses. With a bit of dried rose petal, bay leaf and plum on the finish, this wine is a delicious drink upon release. Compared with some of the bigger, more heavily structured vintages in the 90's, our 1998 is a bit more refined, fruit driven and showy in its youth.
