James SucklingA rich and dense red with a powerful palate of ripe fruit and chewy tannins. Lots of blackberry and blueberry character. Expanding tannins. Needs two or three years to soften.
Wine Enthusiast*Editors’ Choice* 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.
VinousThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst offers lovely immediacy and intensity. Black cherry, chocolate, menthol and licorice give the 2014 much of its racy, voluptuous personality. This is a decidedly ripe style for the Lyndenhurst, as the wine feels slightly bigger and richer than is the norm. That said, the 2014 will drink well upon release.
