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.
91-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2001
Ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, violet, bitter chocolate, lead pencil and mint. Very rich and intensely flavored, with dense but delineated dark berry flavors. Firm, shapely and strong. Finishes with dusty, nicely ripe tannins and excellent persistence. Built for slow and graceful evolution in bottle.
