RATINGS

100Robert M. Parker Jr.

...glorious aromas of spring flowers, lead pencil shavings, licorice and a multitude of wild mountain fruits, in particular black raspberry, blackberry and cassis reminiscent of a French Pauillac...

97Vinous / IWC

...deep & intense, with a huge core of intense red fruit. The tannins have begun to soften... Raspberry jam, mint, sweet spice & pomegranate infuse the building finish... absolutely compelling and exotic Cabernet Sauvignon from Spottswoode.

19Jancis Robinson

Blackish purple. Intense, pungent, velvety. High toned and minerally but rich. Rich and spicy. Vibrant and lifted at the end. Extravagant. Dramatic. Not sweet. This is awfully good...

93Wine Spectator

Notably rich and generous, with a complex array of dark berry, currant and cassis flavors, with subtle herb, spice and cedar notes, ending with a dash of loamy earth. Most impressive on the finish, which sails on and on.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena

St. Helena AVA is at the northern end of Napa Valley just north of Rutherford and south of Calistoga. It is a relatively warm climate thanks to the Mayacamas Mountains on its western edge, which protect it from Pacific Ocean fog. Out of the 9,000 acres in the appellation, some 1,500 are under vine. The principal grapes grown in St. Helena are the Bordeaux grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. St. Helena is considered prime wine producing territory, and it was one of the first important wine producing regions in northern California. The legendary Charles Krug founded his winery just north of the town of St. Helena in 1873, and today the appellation is home to many prestigious producers, including Abreu, Grace Family and Spottswoode.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
