($130) Good full medium ruby. Thoroughly ripe yet energetic aromas of boysenberry, blackberry and bitter chocolate. Big, rich and sweet, with lovely intensity and balance and an element of minerality that expands with aeration and contributes to an impression of clarity and grip. Really resounds on the very long, sweet finish. A great vintage for this wine.

Potentially even better, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon may well be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Spottswoode. Blended with 3% Cabernet Franc, the production is small (only 2,000 cases compared to the 2,900 cases produced in 2006). This opulent wine offers up loads of blue and black fruits intermixed with licorice, a hint of lead pencil shavings, and of course, the telltale floral notes that seem to be a part of this estate vineyard. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, but seamless, rather exuberant and flashy by Spottswoode's standards, but so pure, deep, and rich, one gets the impression that if Chateau Margaux were making Cabernet Sauvignon in St. Helena, it might well taste like this. There is virtually no noticeable oak, given the extravagant richness of the wine, and the balance and elegance, combined with the sensational texture, power, and length, are awesome. This should be a historic Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 30+ years.

Smooth, rich and understated, offering a subtle mix of ripe, full-bodied currant, blackberry and wild berry flavors that aredeftly balanced, with a dash of cedary dill-laced oak. This is slow to unfold, but in doing so offers great depth, concentration and complexity.

Lived up to the eRobertParker hype. Definitely needs some time though. Decanted at least 45 minutes but was still tight. Keep in mind the tightness was only on the palate with the aroma being silky smooth.

About This Producer


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.

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.
