Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon

Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Part of Spottswoode’s storied history inspired the name Lyndenhurst, a tribute to the fragrant linden trees that still bloom in the gardens today. Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon is a dynamic and inviting wine made from grapes grown in our Estate Vineyard blended with those from other acclaimed family-owned vineyards. The relationships we have cultivated with our fellow farmers allow us to learn about and explore other appellations throughout Napa Valley. These collaborations have also allowed us to share our enthusiasm and commitment to organic farming, with the vision of encouraging positive change in our winegrowing community. Our long history as a family-owned winegrowing estate, along with our deep winemaking legacy, enables us to craft this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, whose every vintage is authentic and compelling.

Winemaker Notes: An energetic Napa Valley Cabernet with a bright and impactful first impression imparting flavors of black and red cherries. Medium-bodied with well-integrated, powdery tannins. Notes of blackberry bramble, raspberry, and red currant mingle with cocoa, dried herbs, and crushed graphite. Great acidity. Well balanced and structured, this wine can be enjoyed upon release, and can also be cellared and enjoyed in the years to come.

To call this a second label of Spottswoode isn’t quite fair, it’s such a well-made, thoughtfully considered wine in its own right.
