A Perfect Score from The Wine Advocate!

It is rewarding to be recognized for our efforts to produce wines of balance and exceptional quality year after year. Robert Parker bestowed a perfect score on our 2010 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon in the October 2013 issue of The Wine Advocate, saying,

The brilliant 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts an inky/purple color as well as glorious aromas of spring flowers, lead pencil shavings, licorice and a multitude of wild mountain fruits, in particular black raspberry, blackberry and cassis reminiscent of a French Pauillac (although I always think of Spottswoode as the Chateau Margaux of Napa). With a flawless integration of tannin, wood and acidity, it comes across like a liquid version of haute couture from the house of Chanel. It should drink well young yet age for 25 years. (100 points)

Parker was likewise captivated by our 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, calling it “another tour de force from Spottswoode that boasts beautiful fruit and a long finish.” Read more about this vintage, our current release wine.
