Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

$245.00

100 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

There’s not much to say when one of the biggest names in American wine in one of the best vintages on record in Napa drops their flagship release and it’s rated a perfect 100 points by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. That’s pretty much the definition of a mic drop.

The 40-acre Spottswoode Estate Vineyard is an ideal terroir for growing wine grapes, especially Cabernet. Situated on the apex of the Sulphur Creek fan, the alluvial soils comprised primarily of sandy clay loam provide superb drainage. The gap between the Mayacamas Range and Spring Mountain admits cooling maritime breezes that temper the sun’s heat, creating an ideal microclimate for winegrowing.

This perfect wine features stunning notes of black cherry and currants create a sense of both warmth and freshness. Then come the secondary flavors of pomegranate, pine, earth, complemented by a backbone of vibrant acidity. The refined tannins are structured yet velvety, showcasing the power, elegance, and finesse of this classic wine. You can hold this baby for 40-50 years if you wanted. It’s one of the best American collectible bottles you can grab. I have just 12 bottles total… don’t wait too long if you want a piece of winemaking history.

100 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 89.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.5% Cabernet Franc and 4.0% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it needs of lot of swirling to unlock the most gorgeous perfume of bright black and red cherries, fresh blueberries and blackcurrant pastilles with hints of roses, cinnamon stick and orange peel. Medium-bodied, elegant and tightly wound, the palate shimmers with SO MUCH energy, featuring layer upon layer of floral, savory and crunchy black fruit notes, finishing long and minerally. This is a remarkably poised, seemingly effortless beauty that cannot fail to make your jaw drop. Forget it in the cellar for a good 3-5 years, at least, to allow all those nuances to fully emerge and then savor it over the next 30 years+.

97 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is another incredible wine from this reference point estate in the Valley. Based on 89.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.5 % Cabernet Franc, and the balance Petit Verdot that was raised in 65% new French oak, it has that classic Spottswoode refinement and elegance as well as medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of cassis, tobacco, sandalwood, and flowers. I don’t think this hits the heights of the 2013 or 2016, but it shines for its flawless balance, remarkable purity, and great finish. It’s going to have 30 years of prime drinking.
