Clean and fresh on the nose with minty black currant fruit and gentle cedar accents. Nicely resolved in the mouth feeling softened but not dulled with crisp tannins supporting the slightly chocolaty, minty core of black fruits. This really has nice fruit and while it turns a bit tough on the back end it retains fine focus and has an appealing elegance to it. 90pts

The classy, rich, well-focused 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a Chateau Margaux-like fragrance and personality. Neither overblown nor excessively extracted, it is a beautifully made, pure, cassis-dominated wine with well-integrated toasty new oak.... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1992 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Somewhat controversial, which is not atypical. Some of us really liked this wine, finding youthful notes of black and blue fruit, pine needles, sandalwood, and candied orange peel, with integrated tannins, plush texture, and a savory, yet lively, quality. Others got more vegetal, earthy notes—cooked asparagus and celery, raisin, pumpkin rind. Some of us felt it had inviting warmth, others felt it was tight. A bit of a mystery, but one that you will perhaps enjoy unraveling.
