1984 Spottswoode, Cabernet Sauvignon, St. Helena, Bottle (750ml)

Shop 'In Stock' Wines
"1984 was the first blend that included a tiny quantity of Cabernet Franc (4%). It is hard to know if that accounts for the opulence and lushness of this wine, but this is a beautiful example of a fully mature Spottswoode, with a dark-garnet color, loads of berry fruit intermixed with a touch of tobacco leaf, licorice, and light toast. The fruit is clearly on the blacker-currant side than any red fruits, with lushness, a touch of floral rose petal notes and a medium to full-bodied finish. This is also fully mature, but should continue to hold when well-stored for up to a decade." RP Aug 2016
