Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

52 units available online.
Product description

Spottswoode is a historic, family-owned estate vineyard and winery on the western edge of St. Helena in Napa Valley. To ensure the highest quality, Spottswoode is dedicated to producing a handful of wines in very limited quantities: Spottswoode Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Lyndenhurst, and Field Book. The winery aims to produce exceptional, well-balanced, structured wines that exhibit texture, elegance, consistency and the ability to age well.

The 40-acre Spottswoode Estate Vineyard is an ideal terroir for growing wine grapes. Situated on the apex of the Sulphur Creek fan, the alluvial soils comprised primarily of sandy clay loam provide superb drainage. The gap between the Mayacamas Range and Spring Mountain admits cooling maritime breezes that temper the sun's heat, creating an ideal microclimate for wine growing.

98 Points -  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The gorgeous 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is already drinking beautifully, with incredible waves of black cherry and cassis fruit that have completely absorbed roughly two-thirds of new oak. On this occasion, the wine came across as rather forward and supple, with lush tannins framing ample fruit on the medium to full-bodied palate. Impeccably balanced, with tremendous length on the cool, refreshing finish, it manages to showcase the warmth and generous nature of the site and vintage without going over the top.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is another incredible wine from this reference point estate in the Valley. It has that classic Spottswoode refinement and elegance as well as medium to full-bodied aromas and flavours of cassis, tobacco, sandalwood, and flowers.

96 Points - James Suckling

Ripe blackberries, blackcurrants, cocoa powder, dried thyme and walnut husk on the nose. It's full-bodied, chewy and compact, with firm tannins and a broad, muscular palate. Structured, polished and well-balanced. From biodynamically grown grapes.

96 Points - Vinous

A bright, effusive wine, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is all finesse. Bright aromatics, vibrant red berry fruit and mid-weight structure, give it its charming, sensual personality.
