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.
89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
(100% estate fruit): Bright red-ruby. Black cherry, cassis, cedar and graphite on the nose. Supple and sweet but more vibrant than some past vintages of this second wine, with rich currant and chocolate flavors accented by fresh herbs and a hint of menthol. Finishes with supple tannins and nice length. This will offer plenty of early appeal.
