Spottswoode Family Estate Grown St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

$149

...classic Spottswoode. An inky bluish purple color, notes of vanillin, white flowers, blackcurrants and blueberries are all present in this dense, rich, full-bodied wine that seems to go from strength to strength... This is a beauty and certainly one of the great recent Spottswoodes. It will continue to drink well for 20-30 more years. Robert Parker

One of the producers in Napa. 2005 is perfect now, specially with big bottles.

Out of Magnum solid Napa Cabernet with lots of jammy cassis , spice and a touch of oak. Elegant and well Balanced on the palate with a little tannin left . A good time to start drinking it.

05' Spottswoode Estate Cabernet. Written about this 2005 several times. Decanted it for only an hour. Front of the palate? Middle & back of the palate are beautiful! Black cherry, red licorice, sweet chocolate. Light acidity, with softened tannins. Just consistently making great wines year after year.

05' Spottswoode Cabernet. Decanted for an hour. The color is a ruby red. The nose is striking earthiness & perfume. The palate blueberry, cedar, minerals, light acidity. Tannins flow easily through the palate. Feminine style of wine . This is not a bruiser...very enjoyable. Happy Father's Day!

Popped and poured; drank over 2 hours. Dark, dark color - black/blue ink. Black fruits and some oak. Still very fresh, and for me, will be better and more interesting with 3+ years.
