|WA 99 (12/2010): Retasting the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon was a treat as I believe it is the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon Spottswoode has ever produced. Wonderful aromas of black raspberries, blueberries, black currants and flowers jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged Cabernet. As I have stated before, if Chateau Margaux were in Napa Valley, it would be Spottswoode. The purity, balance and delicacy of this wine are impressive. Perhaps slightly less dense and powerful than the 2008, the 2007 is flawlessly put together with nothing out of place. It, too, should age effortlessly for 20-30+ years.|
WS 95 (10/2010): Smooth, rich and understated, offering a subtle mix of ripe, full-bodied currant, blackberry and wild berry flavors that are deftly balanced, with a dash of cedary dill-laced oak. Slow to unfold, but in doing so offers great depth, concentration and complexity. Best from 2012 through 2022. 1,729 cases made.
IWC 91-94 (6/2009): (includes 5% cabernet franc) Good bright ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of boysenberry, blackberry and violet, lifted by a minty note. Sweet, dense and minerally, conveying a sense of power as well as a distinctly light touch. Captivating dark fruit flavors really saturate the palate. This has a terrific backbone for aging. According to winemaker Jennifer Williams, the cool, dry spring of 2007 limited canopy growth through June, resulting in a moderate crop size.
