SPOTTSWOODE Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 'Estate' 2016

The 2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolutely brilliant wine from Spottswoode and winemaker Aron Weinkauf. This fabulous blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, with 6% Petit Verdot begins with striking aromatics of black currants and cassis which are woven together with fresh violets, dried loam, graphite, espresso nuance that all come together and fill the glass. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous opulent texture with plenty of depth and layers of ripe dark fruits expanding from its core. This goes on to display wonderful overall balance, with an incredible combination of fruit and minerality that persists through the lavish finish. This is a truly remarkable wine from Spottswoode in this vintage which it should have an incredible future ahead.
