About Spottswoode 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Lyndenhurst, Napa Valley

Spottswoode Lyndenhurst is a wine made with the same care and attention as Spottswoode Estate Cabernet. Made from grapes grown in the Spottswoode Estate Vineyard along with those from other exceptional family growers which included Darms Lane in Napa Valley, Edcora in Atlas Peak, Knightsbridge in Knights Valley, Parry Vineyards in St. Helena and Young Inglewood in St. Helena. Lyndenhurst is a serious yet approachable wine. It is the combination and synergy of these specifically selected parcels along with our winemaking expertise and vision.


This 2016 is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1%!Malbec, aged 20 months in 38% new French oak barrels.


Jeb Dunnuck scored it 93 points saying "I loved the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst, a classy wine that shows the style of this great estate perfectly as well as the quality of the vintage. Lots of pure cassis fruits along with touches of violets and tobacco give way to a medium-bodied, ethereal, elegant wine that has terrific purity, balance, and length. It will evolve gracefully for 15 years or more."


Wine Enthusiast Magazine made it an Editors' Choice and scored it 95 points saying "This wine continues to overdeliver on its price point, offering elegant yet powerful aromas of fig, forest floor and earth. Firm tannins offer grip around flavors of black currant, sage, cedar and flint, with spicy clove lingering on the finish."
