Crafted by Winemaker Aron Weinkauf, Spottswoode Lyndenhurst 2020 embodies the essence of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Named in homage to the fragrant linden trees gracing the estate’s historic gardens, this wine seamlessly blends grapes from Spottswoode’s own vineyards with those from esteemed family-owned vineyards, a testament to their commitment to organic farming and community collaboration.
In the glass, Spottswoode Lyndenhurst 2020 exhibits a deep, inviting garnet hue. The bouquet reveals an alluring dance of aromas, led by blackcurrant, hazelnut, and chocolate. Delicate hints of mint and sage lend a nuanced complexity.
Upon the first sip, a bright and energetic character unfolds. Medium-bodied, the wine caresses the palate with velvety softness, courtesy of finely integrated, powdery tannins. Flavors of black and red cherries take center stage, intertwined with notes of blackberry bramble, raspberry, and red currant. Subtle undertones of cocoa, dried herbs, and crushed graphite create a harmonious symphony of taste sensations.
The wine’s acidity is well-balanced, imparting structure and vibrancy. Spottswoode Lyndenhurst 2020 is a wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for future delight. Its elegance and refinement, as noted by James Suckling with a score of 96 points, make it a standout vintage. While it’s already drinkable, patient collectors will be rewarded with an even more exceptional experience as it matures gracefully in the cellar. A true testament to Napa Valley’s winemaking heritage and Spottswoode’s unwavering commitment to excellence.
