2017 Spottswoode 'Lyndenhurst' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

$84.95
JS93

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 "Lots of blueberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, round and soft tannins and a flavorful finish. 84% cabernet sauvignon and 10% merlot with cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot. Drink or hold.” 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!
