Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon

2015 Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast Advance Buying Guide, Virginie Boone

This remains one of the most impressive wines at its price point—a varietal wine blended with small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, from both the producer’s estate and other pedigreed sites. Tense acidity buoys a brawny tannic profile that settles into lushness texture, highlighted in black fruit, butter, gunpowder and plum. 94 points Editors’ Choice (November 13, 2018), James Suckling

A fresh and fruity red with blackcurrant, raspberry and spice character. Full body, super dusty tannins and a flavorful finish. Linear and bright. Luxurious. Enjoying it now. Drink or hold. 93 points (December 21, 2017)

Vinous, Antonio Galloni

Spottswoode’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst is dark, sensual and inviting, as so many wines are. In 2015, the Lyndenhurst has a bit more body and softer contours than is typical, which only add to its sense of immediacy. Black cherry, mocha, grilled herb and licorice all get an extra kick of richness in this sumptuous, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon. 2017–2023. 91 points (March 2018)
