The 2014 'Lyndenhurst' Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful showing from Spottswoode. This blend consists of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon along with 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 2% Merlot which was sourced from various vineyards across the entire valley. It opens to an inviting bouquet of cassis and black currants woven together with tobacco, spices, and hints of sweet toasted nuances all taking shape. A beautifully structured and balanced wine, which shows excellent depth and concentration. The full, opulent texture impresses as stretches through the long finish. A fantastic wine from Spottswoode, that offers immediate appeal, however will likely be even more appealing with just a bit more bottle age.
