2019 Spottswoode Lyndenhurst Cabernet
2019 Spottswoode Lyndenhurst Caberne
The track record of Spottswoode in Napa has very few equals. Under the guidance of the Novak family and with the help of the who’s who of great Napa winemakers starting with Tony Soter, and then following other greats like Mia Klein and Rosemary Cakebread, Andy Erickson and Aaron Weinkauf, they have been able to stamp their style and imprint on this tremendous vineyard. Spotteswoode is truly a First Growth of Napa. I have been lucky enough to sit down with daughter Lindy Novak and taste their great wines on different occasions and it is one of the true greats. Spottswoode is like Chateau Latour from Bordeaux in its consistency. I have never had a bad bottle of Latour in any vintage and I can say the same for Spottswoode. I have been able to secure the 2019 Spottswoode Lyndenhurst Cabernet at a great price for you all. 2019 is a great vintage for Napa. The Wine Spectator has given the vintage 97pts with excellent structure worthy of the cellar. The vintage is a win! Galloni of Vinous comments; “the 2019s I have tasted so far are fabulous. The wines feel like they have a little more energy, power and depth than the 2018s” and 2018 is also a great vintage. This is the Spottswoode “smart buy” Cab, coming in at almost $150 less than the estate bottling. This alluring Cabernet was made using 81% fruit from our own Spottswoode Estate Vineyard, as well as grapes carefully selected from a handful of conscientious growers who share our mindful and quality-focused approach to farming. We have the wine down to $84.99 from its release price of $114.99 plus you get free case shipping. I remind you that the Estate Cabernet from Spottswoode sells between $200 and $300 a Bottle. This is a great buy on Napa royalty. Only 15 cases Available.

Fresh notes of crushed bramble, cassis, and red cherries underpin subtle aromas of lavender, cedar, and spruce. Mineral nuances of wet slate add structure, while the tannins remain silky and supple despite the wine’s youth. A beautiful wine to be enjoyed now and for years to come. – Winery
“This shows lots of chocolate and vanilla on the nose, together with ripe dark fruit and some wet earth. Floral undertones, too. Full-bodied and balanced with a meaty structure and ripe tannin. Yet, it’s easy to drink with a medium, fruity finish. Tight, dry and firm at the end. Modern and poised.” 94pts Suckling
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst is composed of 77.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.4% Cabernet Franc, 4.1% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot and 3.8% Malbec. Deep garnet-purple in color, it skips out of the glass with lively blueberries, redcurrants and kirsch scents, plus hints of cedar chest, fragrant earth and rose hip tea. Medium-bodied, elegant and lively in the mouth, the palate is chock-full of bright and crunchy red and black fruits, finishing long and earthy – 92 Parker’s Wine Advocate
