Spottswoode's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is beautiful, immediate and impeccable in its balance... Spottswoode fans should drink the 2011 relatively early... I will not be surprised if the 2011 turns out to be one of the jewels of this vintage. The medium-bodied structure argues for early drinking, but there is more than enough energy and acidity to suggest the 2011 will age gracefully for a number of years. Incidentally, the 2011 is the first Spottswoode Cabernet under 14% in a decade. Once again, the winemaking team led by Aron Weinkauf has done a fabulous job. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

A wonderful distinctive cab loaded with black fruit character, blueberry most noteworthy. 2011 was a weaker year for the winery but even an off vintage shows wonderfully from this top notch producer.
