About Spottswoode Vineyard
Part of the old guard in Napa Valley, Spottswoode was established in the first wave of vine planting, back in 1882. Christened by Mrs. Albert Spotts in 1910, Spottswoode is now managed by Mary Novak and her two children, Beth and Lindy. Over the past two decades, Spottswoode has been one of the most consistent Cabernet producers of California, with a track record for graceful bottle aging.
87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2001
Good red-ruby. High-toned aromas of plum, currant, tobacco, chocolate and fresh herbs. Pliant and supple on entry, then a bit green toward the back end, with light but slightly drying tannins. This has good texture but could use more verve.
