Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 100

The brilliant 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts an inky/purple color as well as glorious aromas of spring flowers, lead pencil shavings, licorice and a multitude of wild mountain fruits, in particular black raspberry, blackberry and cassis reminiscent of a French Pauillac (although I always think of Spottswoode as the Chateau Margaux of Napa). With a flawless integration of tannin, wood and acidity, it comes across like a liquid version of haute couture from the house of Chanel. It should drink well young yet age for 25 years.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94+

Bright, saturated ruby-red. Fresh, floral aromas of cassis, boysenberry, bitter chocolate and violet. Vibrant and impeccably balanced, with intense cassis and blackberry flavors given punch by nicely integrated juicy acidity. Finishes tactile and long, with plenty of bitter chocolate oak showing. A beauty, but give this at least six or seven years in the cellar or at least extended decanting. The dehydrated fruit in 2010 was declassified, noted winemaker Aron Weinkauf. Lovely wine.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Notably rich and generous, with a complex array of dark berry, currant and cassis flavors, with subtle herb, spice and cedar notes, ending with a dash of loamy earth. Most impressive on the finish, which sails on and on.

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.
