Spottswoode 40th Anniversary Release  –  2 New wines are NOW in stock

 
In 1972 Jack and Mary Novak purchased the original “Spottswoode” property  In 1977, when Mary Weber Novak’s husband passed away unexpectedly, leaving her with five young children and a newly replanted vineyard, she became one of the first women to run a major Napa Valley wine growing estate. In the years since, through her hard work, insight and perseverance, she has established Spottswoode Estate Vineyard & Winery as one of the valley’s great family-owned wineries and first growth-caliber properties. The first commercial wine was produced in 1982 by Tony Soter (Etude & Soter wines). Many other great winemakers have passed the review, all making highly rated wines from this great estate. Today the winery is run by the daughters Beth & Lindy.

Crafted with grapes from Spottswoode Estate, as well as those from other iconic family-owned vineyards, this wine is fermented in a combination of French oak, small stainless steel barrels, a clay amphora, and ceramic and concrete cuves. It is an eminently drinkable yet cellar-worthy Sauvignon that is energetic and sublime, fresh and well-integrated, with extraordinary aromas, effortless poise, and remarkable complexity. Noted wine reviewers have written that “Spottswoode has turned Sauvignon Blanc into an art form,” and have hailed this wine as one of the world’s “best Sauvignon Blancs,” calling it the “aristocracy of domestic Sauvignon Blanc.

Winemaker Notes: "The 2023 vintage was long and temperate, and at times, blissfully cool. The resulting wine has a great balance of richness and texture and a very well-delineated backbone of vibrant acidity. Aromatics and flavors of lemon, mandarin, Asian pear, and white peach with fresh, floral notes of cassis bud and lime. Very long and mouth-wateringly juicy.”

Winemaker Notes: “Opulent floral top notes carry you into an opaque purple core, imparting aromas of black currants, dark red cherry coulis, cigar box, and allspice berries. Powerful yet soft tannins are balanced with a delightful freshness of acidity. The palate is silky with nuanced flavors of cassis, ripe blackberry, and Morello cherry. The long finish invites you to discover the wine’s evolving layers.”

TWI 95 Points: “The 2021 Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of 79.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10.6% Merlot, 3.8% Petit Verdot, 3.5% Cabernet Franc, and 2.9% Malbec. Deep garnet in color, it comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of blackberry pie, plum preserves, and warm cassis followed by suggestions of roses, Indian spices, and menthol plus a waft of aniseed. The medium-bodied palate has impressive energy, with great tension and fine-grained tannins supporting the vibrant fruit, leading to a long and perfumed finish on this impressive wine.”
