Spottswoode Lyndenhurst Cabernets

2013 Spottswoode Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon...$75.99
Fantastic aromas of blueberry, blackberry, violets, black licorice and stones. Full-bodied, firm, silky, and fresh. Very long and balanced. Beautiful tannins. All in harmony. Drink in 2019.
Rated 96/100 James Suckling

2012 Spottswoode Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon...$71.99
Loads of wet earth, autumn leaves, charcoal and black currants. Full body, firm tannins, gorgeous fruit and spices. 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.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling
