The 2006 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon was a phenomenal wine in its own right, and the 2007 takes things to another level entirely. Robert Parker gives this rare beauty 99 points and overflows with praise saying:
“…the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon may well be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Spottswoode. Blended with 3% Cabernet Franc, the production is small. This opulent wine offers up loads of blue and black fruits intermixed with licorice, a hint of lead pencil shavings, and of course, the telltale floral notes that seem to be a part of this estate vineyard. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, but seamless, rather exuberant and flashy by Spottswoode’s standards, but so pure, deep, and rich, one gets the impression that if Chateau Margaux were making Cabernet Sauvignon in St. Helena , it might well taste like this. There is virtually no noticeable oak, given the extravagant richness of the wine, and the balance and elegance, combined with the sensational texture, power, and length, are awesome. This should be a historic Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 30+ years”
With a production of only 2000 cases, and glowing reviews from all corners, this wine will be snatched up in a hurry. At the moment, my special pricing is such that I cannot advertise it on the website and orders for the Spottswoode 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon are being taken by phone only.
