“A lifted nose filled with baking spices reminiscent of a delicious, warm strawberryblackberry-rhubarb pie. Notes of vanilla, butter crust, nutmeg, and a hint of clove. The palate is very approachable, luscious and pretty, the mouthwatering acidity gives length, and playful, chalky tannins provide structure. Rich, round and mouthcoating, with a nuanced core of vibrant red and black fruits (cherries, red currants, plum, mulberry) and a hint of cedar. A ripe, vibrant and textural wine with a softness that invites early drinking.” - Aron Weinkauf, Spottswoode Winemaker

BACKGROUND
Spottswoode is a family-owned historic vineyard and winery renowned for its exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Established in 1882 by George Schonewald, the estate is distinguished by the pre-prohibition Victorian home depicted on the wine label. Spottswoode was christened by Mrs. Albert Spotts in 1910 and it was acquired by Mary and Jack Novak in 1972. Mary released Spottswoode’s first Cabernet Sauvignon in 1982, exactly one hundred years after the estate’s founding.

Today, Mary’s daughter Beth Novak Milliken manages the winery, and daughter Lindy Novak oversees national marketing. Every year four wines are released: Spottswoode Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon, and Field Book Syrah. The Novak family is committed to producing wines with integrity that faithfully reflect their grape origins, and Spottswoode wines are especially known for their refined elegance, balance, and classic structure.
