Product Description

RP100 Deep garnet colored with a lingering hint of purple, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon comes sashaying out of the glass with provocative notions of warm cassis, blueberry compote, blackberry pie and violets with chocolate box, licorice and menthol nuances plus wafts of wilted roses, lavender and kirsch. Medium-bodied, the intensely perfumed black and blue fruit flavors glide gracefully across the palate, revealing a myriad of earth and spice accents, all framed beautifully with super ripe, fine-grained tannins and invigorating freshness, finishing very, very long. Wow." LPB for WA Aug 2018

JD100 "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate continues to show how special this vintage was for the valley and is pure perfection to my palate. Ripe and sexy, with off-the-charts sexiness, it just about jumps from the glass with ample red, black, and blue fruits are interwoven with tobacco leaf, spice box, flowers, and incense-like aromas and flavors. Still youthful, it’s as seamless as they come and has a deep, layered, multi-dimensional texture, one stacked mid-palate, awesome tannins, and a great finish. It’s one of the most exuberant, sexy wines in the lineup, but it still shows classic Spottswoode purity, elegance, and balance. Don’t miss it!" JD May 2021

LP100 "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, with 3% Cabernet Franc in the blend, is deep brick in color. It skips out of the glass with notes of black raspberries, fallen leaves, and warm cassis, giving way to notions of dried Provence herbs, unsmoked cigars, and tapenade. The medium to full-bodied palate has a lively backbone and grainy tannins leading the red and black fruit preserves to a long, ferrous finish. 1,700 cases were made." LPB for TWI Sep 2022
