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.

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2004

($90) Deep ruby-red. Vibrant, high-pitched aromas of boysenberry, cassis, violet and sweet, chocolatey oak. Brighter and more sharply delineated than the 2002, with less obvious baby fat; offers a captivating combination of berry, spice and floral flavors. Very stylish, firmly tannic wine with the intensity and structure for 15 years or more of development in bottle.

Deliscious, scrumptious.. after drinking a couple glasses I believe I'm satisfying at least one of my fruit and veg.. food pyramid requirements for the day..there is that much fruit! Black cherry, chocolate and other red fruits dance around the mouth with excitement..it will be difficult to keep from consuming at an early age. Structured with enough tannins to evolve into something very special with some cellaring.
Limited editon of 60 bottles, this is elegance and substance personified.

Concentrated and smooth black cherry fruit, outstandingly beautiful quality and resonance, shot through with minty overtones, finely structured with good acid and fine tannin, no rough edges, seductive textures, cinnamon and toasty nuances at the mid-palate, and luscious red fruit in the finish. Even for a Francophile, this is as good as red wine can get! A+! NVVA AUCTION, 2/03

Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
