LYNDENHURST (SPOTTSWOODE) CABERNET SAUVIGNON, NAPA VALLEY 2014
To call this a second label of Spottswoode's isn't quite fair, it's such a well-made, thoughtfully considered wine in its own right. Juicy black currant, tart cranberry, licorice and clove meet a wall of toasted oak and chocolate in a medium-bodied, approachable and properly balanced expression of the variety that will impress seekers of restraint and grace.n 5/1/2018 Virginie Boone
NVWE Notes: This wine is, if deeply concentrated, more forthcoming in aroma than its Estate sibling. The nose offers a rich melange of Creme de Cassis, dried black cherry, black raspberry, violet, black fig, date molasses, bitter chocolate, toffee, clove, bouillon, old leather and forest-floor spice. It is more forthcoming yet on the palate, where dry black cherry, black currant, plum, black fig, date, toffee, graphite, leather, tobacco and foresty spice create a rich, lingering mouthful that is clipped just a bit at the end when the tannins kick in. Certainly a fine match to sauced meats and rich winter entrees already, it should further improve over the next five years.
