2012 Spottswoode Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

The year 2012 was what might be considered an idyllic growing season in Napa Valley, and our Spottswoode Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful reflection of this vintage and of our exceptional 40-acre estate vineyard.

Juicy primary fruit flavors predominate this inviting wine. Penetrating blackberry and blueberry essence with some creamy yogurt, cassis liqueur, plum, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Malted chocolate and a hint of black pepper on the nose. There is a density along with focus and a pristine delineation. Great structure and concentration, with ripe, refined tannins and good acidity. This remarkable wine has immense potential. The 2012 was a pleasure to make; the vintage was close to a dream come true!
