Heiner Lobenberg über:
Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


Lobenberg: Spottswood ist sicher einer der Welmeister darin, neben der Moderne auch extrem köstliche Tropfen auf die Flasche zu bringen. 95/100


Galloni über: Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon

-- Galloni: The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst is a fabulous wine that shows just how compelling the vintage is, even among mid-tier offerings. Blackberry, graphite, cloves, licorice and lavender all build in the glass. The Lyndenhurst Cabernet is usually much more approachable, but the 2018 is a real powerhouse. I would give the tannins at least a few years to soften. This is impressive, to say the least. 94/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon

-- Jeb Dunnuck: A wine well worth purchasing and cellaring, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst sports a dense purple hue as well as classic Cabernet notes of blackcurrants, Asian spices, violets, licorice, and tobacco. Beautifully rich, full-bodied, and concentrated, it's one heck of a second wine that can be drunk today or cellared for 15-20 years. 94/100


International Wine Report über: Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon

-- International Wine Report: The Spottswoode 'Lyndenhurst' Cabernet Sauvignon is excellent in this vintage. Composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc this begins with inviting aromatics of blackberries and black cherries that are woven together with graphite, spices, spring florals, tobacco and hints of violets. On the palate this is full-bodied and remarkably well-structured with firm tannins and excellent concentration through the finish. This is absolutely outstanding today, but will also continue to evolve beautifully over the course of the next decade and beyond. 94/100
