Spottswoode Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
James Suckling"Fantastic aromas of blueberry, blackberry, violets, black licorice and stones. Full-bodied, firm, silky, and fresh. Very long and balanced. Beautiful tannins. All in harmony. Drink in 2019."
Wine EnthusiastThis wine employs 73% Spottswoode Estate Vineyard fruit, but also ventures to other sites, including Young Inglewood, Oakville Ranch and Darms Lane. Dusty cedar, blackberry and pencil shavings dot a structured, classically stylized landscape, additionally seasoned in black pepper and clove. It has length for miles; enjoy best 2023 through 2033.
VinousA wine of precision, nuance and freshness, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst offers notable freshness, not to mention fabulous overall balance. Beams of underlying tannin give the wine much of its pulsating energy. Bright floral and spice notes add an attractive upper register to the red-toned fruit
