Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

($80) Full ruby-red. Big, rich, perfumed aromas of blueberry, boysenberry, violet, menthol, coffee and loam. Rich and mellow but vinous, with fruit-driven flavors of currant, blueberry and boysenberry. Nicely full in the middle but slightly lean on the back end, with a bit of acidity showing. "In 2000 we benefitted by being on the valley floor, with lighter soils," noted winemaker Rosemary Cakebread.

Savoury, meat extract complete and well integrated. Qute intense and voluptuous. Very seductive yet savoury and interesting. Racy, velvety and lovely and harmonious. Opulent. Quite sweet on the finish. A bit leaner than F. (LM)

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

One of the most successful wines for the vintage, Spottswoode's 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is more forward and lighter than either of its two younger siblings. However, it is impeccably balanced and seamless, revealing the estate's classic blueberry, black currant, mineral, and floral characteristics in its moderately intense aromatics. Pure, rich, and well-proportioned, this is a top-flight success in an irregular vintage. Enjoy it over the next 10-12 years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

A curious mix of rich, racy, rustic wild berry, currant and earthy-leathery flavors that turn progressively drier and more earthy. Drink now through 2012. 5,674 cases made.

Nose of cedar and dark purple color suggest a bigger wine than the medium bodied blackberry fruit and casis on the palate. Very smooth and soft tannins. Notes are from wine poured from Magnum.

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.
