Wonderful example of an aged California Cabernet; Spottswoode is so good year in and year out. 32 years old and still going strong. Tasted at California Winemasters Cystic Fibrosis benefit

Some bricking, garnet with orange on the edge. Dried red fruit, fig, leather and fun musty old CA Cab flavors. Nearly resolved tannins but the acidity is there and completely smooth tasty sailing.

Drinking very well now but still can age. Vibrant and plush.

Starting to brick, heading more toward leather than fruit - still drinking well.
