    ($32) Pale, bright yellow. Aromas of lime, quince, minerals and mint.Rich, ripe and fairly full for sauvignon, with harmonious acids framing the flavors of pear, mint and licorice.Finishes with a slight alcoholic warmth but manages to come off as suave and refreshing.

    One of Napa's best Sauvignon Blancs consistently emerges form the Spottswoode estate. Always elegant but with authoritative flavors, the 2005 is dry and shows hints of figs, honey, melon-like fruit, and citrus blossom. Lively acidity, a medium-bodied texture, and good concentration result in one of the more beautiful Sauvignon Blancs of the region. Drink it over the next several years.

  • 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.
