overviewSpottswoode produces four wines in very limited quantities: the Spottswoode Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, the Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, the Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon, and the recently-introduced Field Book, Spottswoode’s first-ever Rhone style wine. The Spottswoode Estate vineyard has been farmed organically since 1985 and has been certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) since 1992.
Spottswoode Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
For more than twenty-five years, we have been committed to translating our grapes into a Cabernet that embodies the unique characteristics of the Spottswoode Estate. Our commitment to honoring our vineyard yields an Estate Cabernet Sauvignon that consistently exudes elegant power, effusive blackberry fruit and spice, naturally refined tannins, and extraordinary color. It is lush and expressive in its youth and continues to evolve beautifully over time.
Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc
Sensitively farmed to preserve the land, grapes from our own estate and from a handful of small, family-owned vineyards are blended to create this classically-styled Sauvignon Blanc. We make this wine in the same careful way that we tend our vineyards and gardens, producing only a limited quantity of each vintage. Our Sauvignon Blanc expresses that which we feel is best about this varietal—tropical fruit, notes of citrus and lemongrass, spice and a crisp minerality, all balanced with a subtle creaminess.
Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon
Made to the same exacting standards as our Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon, we craft a small amount of Lyndenhurst from our estate vineyard to create an exquisite blend that is lovely and expressive. Our Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon is brimming with fresh raspberry and red berry flavors and is ready to enjoy upon release.
In our quest to educate ourselves in all things vinous, we have pursued our love for Syrah and are thrilled to offer Spottswoode’s Field Book. This Syrah is from Griffin’s Lair Vineyard, which is situated on a windswept hill in the Petaluma Gap and produces small clusters of berries with intense flavors. Our Spott On! Club members are offered this limited production as an expression of our sincere appreciation for past patronage and dedication.
