    Loads of wet earth, autumn leaves, charcoal and black currants. Full body, firm tannins, gorgeous fruit and spice. Beautiful tannin and acid tension to this wine with a solid core of fruit to balance it. Better in 2019. 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc.

    Winery Notes

    Another product of the picture-perfect 2012 growing season, this is quite simply an incredible Cabernet Sauvignon, offering a stylistic counterpoint to our Spottswoode Cabernet. Noted critic Antonio Galloni describes this wine as “bold, intense and racy,” adding that, “the style is round and succulent to the core; in other words, classic 2012.” This alluring Cabernet was made using 81% fruit from our own Spottswoode Estate Vineyard, as well as grapes carefully selected from a handful of conscientious growers who share our mindful and quality-focused approach to farming. Although the Lyndenhurst label has a new look, our talented winemaking team has crafted this approachable and expressive, limited-production wine for more than ten years. Lyndenhurst (one of the original names of the Spottswoode Estate) exhibits the essence of Spottswoode, honoring its terroir and heritage. With its rich, red fruit characteristics and velvety tannins, it is a beautifully balanced wine to be enjoyed upon release.
