WINEMAKERS NOTES

Part of Spottswoode’s storied history inspired the name Lyndenhurst, a tribute to the fragrant linden trees that still bloom in the gardens today. Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon is a dynamic and inviting wine made from grapes grown in our Estate Vineyard blended with those from other acclaimed family-owned vineyards. The relationships we have cultivated with our fellow farmers allow us to learn about and explore other appellations throughout Napa Valley. These collaborations have also allowed us to share our enthusiasm and commitment to organic farming, with the vision of encouraging positive change in our winegrowing community. Our long history as a family-owned winegrowing estate, along with our deep winemaking legacy, enables us to craft this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, whose every vintage is authentic and compelling.

TASTING NOTES: A complex and inviting Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon suggesting notes of raw fresh blackberries, crushed graphite, cassis, baking spices, and cocoa powder. Fine tannins provide savory structure, while floral notes of violets and laurel perfume the glass.

Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck 94 POINTS

A wine well worth purchasing and cellaring, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst sports a dense

purple hue as well as classic Cabernet notes of blackcurrants, Asian spices, violets, licorice, and tobacco.

Beautifully rich, full-bodied, and concentrated, it’s one heck of a second wine that can be drunk today

or cellared for 15–20 years.

Vinous, Antonio Galloni 94 POINTS

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst is a fabulous wine that shows just how compelling the

vintage is, even among mid-tier offerings. Blackberry, graphite, cloves, licorice and lavender all build

in the glass. The Lyndenhurst Cabernet is usually much more approachable, but the 2018 is a real

powerhouse. I would give the tannins at least a few years to soften. This is impressive, to say the least.

James Suckling 93 POINTS

Black plums, blueberries, chocolate, cloves and dried leaves. Black olives, too. It’s full-bodied with

firm, fine-grained tannins. Chewy, generous layers of dark fruit and chocolate. Try from 2022.

Wine Advocate 92 POINTS

The deep purple-black colored 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst comes bounding out of the

glass with exuberant scents of fresh blackcurrants, black raspberries and Morello cherries plus hints of

lavender, pencil lead and bouquet garni with a touch of Sichuan pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the

palate is charged with electric energy, framed by grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing with great

intensity and purity.
