This wine is plush, rich and elegant. It seduces with forward fruit (picture a bowl of ripe berries), brown sugar mocha and buttery pastry. The 2007 is a big,
structured wine that is beautifully integrated. Voluptuous and balanced with delicious concentration—this wine is the complete package!
Blend: 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc
"Retasting the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon was a treat as I believe it is the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon Spottswoode has ever produced. Wonderful aromas of black raspberries, blueberries, black currants and flowers jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged Cabernet. As I have stated before, if Chateau Margaux were in Napa Valley, it would be Spottswoode. The purity, balance and delicacy of this wine are impressive. Perhaps slightly less dense and powerful than the 2008, the 2007 is flawlessly put together with nothing out of place. It, too, should age effortlessly for 20-30+ years."
The Wine Advocate
"Smooth, rich and understated, offering a subtle mix of ripe, full-bodied currant, blackberry and wild berry flavors that are deftly balanced, with a dash of cedary dill-laced oak. Slow to unfold, but in doing so offers great depth, concentration and complexity. Best from 2012 through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,729 cases made."
