Scott Taddeo

he wine itself is intensely aromatic leading with touches of violets, lavender and blue gum before notes of black currant, cassis, ripe plums, liquorice, dark chocolate and some toasty oak. Immediately assertive in the palate with power being the defining message, the wine is extremely focused with inherent freshness nestled within its big frame. It’s extremely youthful and those with patience will surely be rewarded, but jeeze it’s hard to stop drinking it now 🔥

My second Spottswoode of the day. Utterly profound - structured and long. Black fruited, cassis, heart of darkness, yet elegant and refined.

2014, the prettiest most bright of the other two, tons of baby fat to shed. Bright red fruit throughout and an amazing nose

Beautiful aroma that opens with expressive dark fruit. True representation of St. Helena - a steel fist in a velvet glove. Full bodied with voluptuous tannins and a lengthy finish.

Blackberry, cassis, raspberry preserves, black cherry, loganberry, dark chocolate and oak. Excellent structure and well-integrated tannins.
