1988 Spottswoode Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #900358 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The '88 Cabernet from Spottswoode has aged beautifully. The nose is open and generous with black fruits, cedar, pinecones and orange blossom. The palate is well-knit with very good concentration considering its age with just a hint of strawberry sorbet on the entry entwined with star anis. Lovely definition and poise, with a silky smooth finish, this bottle is well above my expectations. (NM) Inner quote mark (7/2011)

K&L Notes

On this iconic estate Robert Parker noted in 2012 "As I have always said, if there is a Château Margaux to be found in Napa Valley, it is Beth and Mary Novak's iconic Spottswoode winery, situated on the back streets of St. Helena." From Spottswoode's 2008 library tasting: "Mature, robust and somewhat earthy. Dried bay and tea leaves, leather, menthol, smoke, forest floor, minerals, but also some cloves and spice, candied apple, and brown sugar. Rolling, dark flavors. Nice balance. Good follow-through to the warm, attractive palate."
