Lobenberg: Hypermodern und doch extrem profund und vielschichtig, einer der besten Cabernets der Neuzeit und extrem köstlich! 100/100

Parker über: Cabernet Sauvignon

-- Parker: Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from Spottswoode explodes from the glass with bombastic notes of crushed blackcurrants, fresh blackberries and wild blueberries with hints of cardamom, lilacs, incense and fragrant earth, leading into wafts of pencil shavings and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied, elegant and yet so, so intense, it has layers of bright crunchy fruit and mineral sparks galore, framed by exquisitely ripe, finely pixelated tannins, finishing very long and energetic. Wowsers.100/100

Jeb Dunnuck über: Cabernet Sauvignon

-- Jeb Dunnuck: One of the wines of the vintage, as well as a legendary Napa Cabernet that will compete with anything out there, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals a deep purple hue as well as extraordinary notes of pure crème de cassis and blackberry-scented fruits intermixed with lots tobacco leaf, lead pencil, spice, and hints of flowers. Reminding me of the 2016 with its purity as well as its balance, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a layered, seamless texture, and a blockbuster of a finish. Based on 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot, this is a wine you don’t want to miss! It’s going to take 7-8 years to hit its early drinking plateau and cruise for 30-40 years in cold cellars. 100/100

Spottswoode Estate

Spottswoode Estate ist ein 1882 gegründetes Weingut und auch ein gleichnamiger Weinberg in Eigenbesitz. Es zählt somit zu den wenigen Pre-Prohibitionsweingütern der USA, die es geschafft haben diese Zeit zu überstehen. Noch heute wird es von der Gründerfamilie geführt.
