Food Pairings for Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Premier
97 points Wine Enthusiast: Tasted in a big lineup of St. Helena Cabernets, Spottswoode's magnificent '05 stood out. It's a massive powerhouse, explosive in black currant, cherry pie, plum, chocolate, anise and cedar flavors that are detailed and precise. However, the wine, which was blended with a little Cabernet Franc, is graceful and balanced. Drinkable now due to its softly refined tannins, but has the integrity to ride out the years. (Apr 2009) San Francisco Chronicle 'Top 100 Wine of 2008'.
