LYNDENHURST (SPOTTSWOODE) CABERNET SAUVIGNON, NAPA VALLEY 2015
NVWE Notes: Predominantly from Spottswoode’s intense Estate vineyard, but blended with some purchased fruit to provide earlier enjoyment, this darkly rich wine offers aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, blueberry, Cassis, grilled black fig, violet, dark rose, cedar, clove, tobacco, leather, graphite and dark forest earth. It is rich and weighty on the palate, yet suave and polished in texture, so the plush fruit and warm spices are palate-coating yet show little roughness despite their youth. The finish is lingering and the flavors never less than full, and current enjoyment is a true option. Expect five years or so of positive evolution. Blended with 12% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petite Verdot, 2000 cases produced.

Spottswoode's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst is dark, sensual and inviting, as so many wines are. In 2015, the Lyndenhurst has a bit more body and softer contours than is typical, which only add to its sense of immediacy. Black cherry, mocha, grilled herb and licorice all get an extra kick of richness in this sumptuous, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon.
