Lot #1658. Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2009

Description: Consists of 4 Magnums, 1.5L
Score: 97 AG.
"Another super-impressive effort, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts stunning depth and sheer power. Black currants, pencil shavings, mocha, incense and melted road tar are all woven together gracefully in this powerful, opulent wine. The tannins remain firm, so another few years of cellaring is a must. There is serious density and sheer power to burn. Today the 2009 is a touch less vibrant than the 2010, but more overt and voluptuous. A brooding, muscular finish rounds things out beautifully. The 2009 is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot." Vinous, Dec 2012
Provenance: The Florisando Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,800
