    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    Potentially even better, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon may well be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Spottswoode. Blended with 3% Cabernet Franc, the production is small (only 2,000 cases compared to the 2,900 cases produced in 2006). This opulent wine offers up loads of blue and black fruits intermixed with licorice, a hint of lead pencil shavings, and of course, the telltale floral notes that seem to be a part of this estate vineyard. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, but seamless, rather exuberant and flashy by Spottswoode’s standards, but so pure, deep, and rich, one gets the impression that if Chateau Margaux were making Cabernet Sauvignon in St. Helena, it might well taste like this. There is virtually no noticeable oak, given the extravagant richness of the wine, and the balance and elegance, combined with the sensational texture, power, and length, are awesome. This should be a historic Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 30+ years.

    One of Spottswoode’s all-time great wines looks to be the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc). This inky/blue/purple-colored offering displays abundant aromas of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, cassis, and crushed wet rocks, superb opulence, a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol, and wood, and a texture that builds incrementally on the palate, never becoming heavy. This sensational wine should drink effortlessly for 20-25+ years.
