Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst Napa Valley 2013

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Spottswoode Lyndenhurs is a wine made with the same care and attention as Spottswoode Estate Cabernet. 73% of the fruit for this This 2013 Lyndenhusrt comes from their own estate vineyard. Additional grapes are carefully selected from a handful of Spottswoode's mindful and quality-focused approach to farming. A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 50% new French oak barrels. James Suckling scored this 96 points and said "Fantastic aromas of blueberry, blackberry, violets, black licorice and stones. Full-bodied, firm, silky, and fresh. Very long and balanced. Beautiful tannins. All in harmony. Drink in 2019."

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
