Deep and spicy on the nose with hints of allspice, white pepper, vitamins, vanilla, toast and old chicken bouillon cube all blending for an intriguing, if not totally appealing bouquet. Up front this offer a nice bit of sweet, bright red fruit but the mid-palate becomes dominated by the acidity as it turns harsh and hollow which becomes unrelenting on the moderately long finish. With air this fleshes out a bit as the fruit gains traction and begins to cover the mid-palate but the finish remains raw and aggressive. I’ve had better bottles of this and can only assume that this has seen less than ideal storage over the years. 86pts

Cranberry color. Opened beautifully no decanting. Cigar box, cherry on the nose. The palate was smooth with integrated tannins, herbs, hint of dark fruit, and explosion of cherry before a long finish

Full ruby-red color. Very ripe aromas of cassis, minerals, bitter chocolate, graphite, cedar and menthol. Sweet, lush and fruity; quite fat for a Spottswoode cabernet. A bit youthfully disjointed today but then this has not yet recovered from the bot... Stephen Tanzer. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2004 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 1500ml

There are 5,200 cases of the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. This is one of Napa's most promising Cabernets of the vintage. It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with sweet aromas of creme de ca... Robert Parker. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2000 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

...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. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1995 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 1500ml

Pleasantly balanced, rich and polished, it's in perfect drinking shape now, with well-defined currant and black cherry fruit, smooth, integrated tannins and a long, complex, elegant aftertaste that gives it a sense of grace and finesse. Finishes with... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1994 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
