The Spottswoode Estate Cabernet 1997 combines Californian power and intensity with Bordeaux elegance and refinement. This complex, multilayered Cabernet has all the attributes of great winemaking and great soil too.

”A spectacular wine, it was the first made by Rosemary Cakebread. ..This is wine that fills the olfactory senses with gorgeous ripeness, blueberries, black raspberries, blackberries and cassis, while spring flowers and a touch of oak still lingers in the aromatics. When the wine hits the palate, the extraordinary intensity, purity and multi-dimensional complexity all seem to converge with a cascade of fruit, glycerin and richness...This is a magnificent wine.." Robert Parker
