Family Estate Grown St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

My contribution to Winopalooza 2019 and the 2012 vintage is living up to the hype! No notes as this was one of about 20 exceptional wines tasted yesterday. So glad we have 2 more bottles in the cellar. #spottswoode — 8 months ago

Spottswoode "Lyndenhurst" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

This is a second label of Spottswoode's. A dense, rich dark fruits with toasted oak. Voluptuous. Love it. Approachable now.

Family Estate Grown St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

My 4th bottle, the best and my last, this absolutely killed it and is why I love Napa Valley Cabernet, especially #Spottswoode. 12 years old this easily has another 10 to go but is in a beautiful place right now. Open or decant for 30 minutes, though I did not decant. A deep resold color, not a sign of brick as one would expect. Shows the importance of provenance (bought from winery). A complex set or aromas and flavors of creme d'cassis, currants, sweet and sour cherries, sweet cedar, and graphite. Palate wise the textures are all in alignment, with medium to full body, ample acidity and medium grain slightly chewy tannins that may be it's only flaw. #2002 — 5 years ago

Family Estate Grown St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Radiant and transparent Cabernet showing excellent purity and very good typicity and acidity. Spottswoode is always so consistent for me and always so impeccably pure. The 2008 is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc that shows beautiful Cabernet traits, something the best Napa wines excel at. What many wines in Napa do not necessarily excel at is revealing the terroir of site, this vintage of Spottswoode shows terroir in spades. Cassis and currants, a dash of mocha, a touch of graphite and rock, with white floral and violet aromatics in the background. A nice streak of minerality shows up on the mid-palate and finish. The tannin are ripe, full bodied, but fine and supple. The acidity here is key, it elevates the aromas, as well as adds lift and energy to the palate, while refreshing the finish.
@spottswoodewinery makes some of the most consistent and honest wines from
