Firm, youthful, juicy, fresh blackberries, black cherries and rose petals with coffee and dark chocolate. Dense and rich. Expressive. Great freshness and vivacity with a corresponding richness and power. Cedar with some cream and graham cracker crust. A long finish. Impressive and exceptional-a great deal of potential. We have great enthusiasm for this wine!

James Suckling"Fantastic aromas of blueberry, blackberry, violets, black licorice and stones. Full-bodied, firm, silky, and fresh. Very long and balanced. Beautiful tannins. All in harmony. Drink in 2019."

Wine EnthusiastThis wine employs 73% Spottswoode Estate Vineyard fruit, but also ventures to other sites, including Young Inglewood, Oakville Ranch and Darms Lane. Dusty cedar, blackberry and pencil shavings dot a structured, classically stylized landscape, additionally seasoned in black pepper and clove. It has length for miles; enjoy best 2023 through 2033.

Wine AdvocateOne of the iconic wineries of Napa Valley, their 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst, a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this is s softer, less prodigious wine than the flagship wine from their estate in St. Helena. This wine exhibits a nice, healthy, dark ruby/purple color, a sweet nose of black cherries and blackcurrants and Margaux-like finesse in a medium-bodied, supple and seductive style. Drink it over the next decade.
