I tasted this for the second time over the summer at Spottswoode, alongside their newest vintage of Mary’s Block Sauvignon Blanc (one of the BEST SB’s coming out of California), Lyndenhurst, and Sauvignon Blanc. Like their other estate wines recently released, this estate Cabernet is a great reflection of the time their team spent creating a high-quality wine. Joe’s newest review for Robert Parker Wine Advocate says it best. “Tasted blind, in a lineup that included vintages back to 2010, a barrel sample of Spottswoode's 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon stood out as being one of the most exciting efforts. Full-bodied, ripe and rich without being overbearing, it delivers concentrated black cherry and cassis fruit framed by supple, velvety-textured tannins. It's long on the finish, with an attractively soft, dusty-loamy texture and no overt signs of a fire-troubled Napa vintage.” 98-100 Points, Robert Parker Wine Advocate.
