Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92-95

Another outstanding example from this consistently high quality performer, Spottswoode's 1995 stood out in my barrel tasting as one of the strongest efforts of the vintage. Although tightly wound, it exhibits an opaque purple color, and a tight but gorgeous nose of blackcurrants, vanilla, minerals, and a touch of smoke and blueberries. Medium to full-bodied and impeccably well-balanced, this wine's structural components (acidity, alcohol, and tannin) are beautifully meshed together with the lavishly rich fruit that is presented in a medium to full-bodied format. This should turn out to be a textbook, classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that admirably balances elegance and power. (Tasted in barrel.)

Beautifully textured, this dense, firm red is thick with ripe fruit flavors, accented with tar, spice and earth. It's balanced and long. Approachable now.--Spottswoode vertical. 4,550 cases made.

Deep ruby-red. Floral, cool aromas of boysenberry, violet and mint. Intense, penetrating dark berry and licorice flavors are given definition by a strong acid spine. Quite tightly wrapped today and beginning to shut down. Lingering, subtle berry flavors on the finish. This cabernet will age as much on its acids as on its tannins.

This is delicious. Ripe red berry fruit with creme de cassis. Baking spices, sweet tobacco and new leather saddle add complexity. Well-balanced, restrained on the more elegant side. Wonderful, pleasing finish with great length.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
