Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst Napa Valley 2007
Stunning aromatics of plum, butterscotch and coffee. A rich palate of fresh dark berries, cherries and vanilla lead to deliciously sweet tannins. Seamless from aroma to finish, this wine is wonderfully representative of this incredible vintage! 92.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7.3% Cabernet Franc. 870 cases. Organically farmed since 1985.
Editorial Reviews for Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst Napa Valley
Sweet and gingery on the nose with aromas of coffee grinds and ginger layered over black fruit that shows some hints of weediness. This is fairly dominated by the oak though. Round and bright with acid on the palate, this is broad in the mouth and front loaded with fruit then turning compact and earthy and hollowed out by dry wood tannins on the mid-palate. the finish is mostly drying oak. Not much to like here. 82pts
