2000 Spottswoode "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1004728 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark In 2000, Rosemary Cakebread was still in charge, and production soared to more than 5,000 cases for the first time since 1992. This was a challenging vintage in California, but this wine is a real sleeper of that year and certainly one of the vintage’s strongest efforts. This was the first wine made entirely at the new Spottswoode Winery. The blend was identical to so many of the Spottswoode wines: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. Exotic, rich, blue and black fruits soar from the glass of this wine that seems open-knit, velvety textured and not terribly structured, but possessing beautiful fruit and fragrance. It is a sleeper selection and a beauty of medium body to drink over the next 7-8 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The 2000 Spottswoode is cut from the same stylistic cloth as the 1999 and 1998, but its aromatics are more untamed; briary black fruits and dried red berries intermingle with notes of leather and cigar box. On the palate these wild qualities carry over, lending the wine attractively savoury dimensions, which will appeal to those who do not find a little brettanomyces distracting. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2015)
