Crafted from younger vines in the Spottswoode vineyard and other select sites in St. Helena, Oak Knoll, Oakville, and Knights Valley, Lyndenhurst is a powerful wine with a long aging potential. Suckling called it "Attractive, fresh, violet-like flowers, roasting herbs and cassis, leading to a medium-to full-bodied palate that has a smoothly succulent resolve at the plum-soaked, velvety finish” This is a great way to experience the craftsmanship of Spottswoode at a more modest price. As The Wine Spectator noted, this is far more than a “second wine” and it truly stands on its own. We agree 100% as we fell in love with its delicious and alluring fruit and intoxicating nose. You will love it too!

James Suckling

Attractive, fresh, violet-like flowers, roasting herbs and cassis, leading to a medium-to full-bodied palate that has a smoothly succulent resolve at the plum-soaked, velvety finish. A blend of mostly cabernet sauvignon with touches of petit verdot, merlot, petite sirah and cabernet franc and a dash of malbec
