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.

Excellent deep color. Perfumed berry and chocolate aromas, with a hint of menthol. Silky, suave and penetrating; flavor of raw blackberry. Finishes subtle and quite long, with very fine, suave tannins and a burst of berry flavor. Not a superripe vintage for Spottswoode, but a lovely drink.
