Wine Details

Wine Description

(2005 Vintage) The prodigious 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate may be Spottswoodes strongest effort since their superb 2002 and 2001. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a classic bouquet of violets, graphite, blueberries, and creme de cassis with hints of licorice and cedar. Stunningly pure and elegant as well as substantial and authoritatively flavored, this is a long, rich, concentrated wine with the grace of a ballerina. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age and consume it over the following 20-25+ years. Cheese pairings: Gorgonzola, CamembertFood Pairings: Steak, Beef Stew
