Spottswoode

Mary's Block Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Tonight's wine is the 2016 Spottswoode Mary's Block Sauvignon Blanc.

On the nose there are very distinct notes of grapefruit, peach, lime, melon, herbaceous notes and minerals.

On the palate there are lovely notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lime, white peach, grassy notes, herbaceousness and minerals.

This wine is medium bodied with a crisp and clean mouthfeel, medium + to high acidity that move very well into a long citrus and mineral finish. What a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc this is and it has at least another 5 years or more left in store. Please have a wonderful week ahead, stay safe and healthy and it will be the weekend again before you know it. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Nice note & pull. Enjoy the week.

Spottswoode

Napa County Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2007

While being a HUGE wine - making you want to brush your teeth after a glass!!! - this wine is remarkably silky and smooth with vanilla, black cherries, and well integrated tannins. An absolutely wonderful experience today, but clearly still on the upswing of its maturity curve. — 19 days ago

Premiere Napa Valley Auction SunSpot Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

Premier Napa Valley Barrel samples. The Shafer Sunspot was fairly tight, structured with good balance & length that will need 5-10 yrs to open where the Spottswoode was open & drinking well with lovely fruit & spice. Group preferred the Spottswoode for its immediate pleasure. — 5 months ago

Happy Birthday Christina & Hedy.

Nightcap.

This second wine of Spottswoode was dark, rich fruits, lots of black licorice, round, rich and smooth as silk. Reminded me of 2000 Les Forts de Latour.

One of my favorites from Premiere Napa Valley 2020. #pnv20 #pnv2020 #napa only 5 cases produced 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Spottswoode Estate Vineyard, first established in 1882
Aging for 20 months in custom Hungarian oak barrels
Inspired by winemaker Aron Weinkauf’s visit to the forests and Kádár cooperage of Hungary
Organically farmed since 1985

For the first time ever, Spottswoode offers a Cabernet Sauvignon from the Spottswoode Estate Vineyard aging exclusively in Hungarian oak. Since the first vintage of Spottswoode in 1982, the pursuit to capture the highest expression of this historic vineyard yielded a philosophy of experimentation and continuous improvement. In the cellar, winemaker and vineyard manager Aron Weinkauf conducts cooper trials, which inform how he selects new barrels and refines Spottswoode's diverse barrel program. In 2017, Aron Weinkauf visited the Kadar cooperage as well as forests in Hungary to gain a greater understanding of Hungarian oak. With the exceptional 2018 vintage, Aron aged 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon from the Spottswoode Estate in custom barrels crafted during his visit. This wine is the result of his research.
