Winemaker's Notes

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

Critical Acclaim

"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."

"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."
95 Points

"Good bright ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of boysenberry, blackberry and violet, lifted by a minty note. Sweet, dense and minerally, conveying a sense of power as well as a distinctly light touch. Captivating dark fruit flavors really saturate the palate. This has a terrific backbone for aging. According to winemaker Jennifer Williams, the cool, dry spring of 2007 limited canopy growth through June, resulting in a moderate crop size.

Range: 91-94 Points"

"The Novak family farms 40 acres of vines behind their Victorian house in western St. Helena, producing cabernet that’s notable for its elegance rather than overt richness or power. There’s coolness to this 2007, with scents that hint at the forests of the Mayacamas. The fruit is bright with cranberry edges, red cherry, plum and floral notes, lasting with minerality. The balance and refreshing savor marks this as a wine that will age with grace."

Learn About Spottswoode Map ItMap It

Spottswoode is a small, family-owned estate located on the western edge of St. Helena in the Napa Valley. The estate, which dates to the 1800s, includes classic formal gardens, pre-prohibition winery buildings and the 40-acre, organically farmed estate vineyard. Spottswoode focuses all of its attention on producing extremely limited quantities of two wines: Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
