JS 93 Vinous 92 Pts, 92pts The Tasting Panel - According to James Suckling - This is very balanced and juicy with plum, terracotta and light milk chocolate. Full body with velvety, firm tannins but fresh and clean. Very long and beautiful. The depth and beauty are impressive. Drink or hold.
According to Antonio Galloni - The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst is a gorgeous, entry-level offering from one of Napa Valley's historic wineries. Soft, supple and expressive, the 2011 impresses for its supple, gracious personality. Mocha, plums, cloves, licorice and menthol flesh out on a generous finish brightened by a kick of acidity. The 2011 Lyndenhurst is a blend of estate and purchased fruit. Today it is beautiful, accessible and delicious. Lyndenhurst, Spottswoode's second wine, is a blend of estate and purchased fruit.
According to Wine & Spirits - This cabernet’s deep black currant and cassis flavors feel saturated even as the wine’s structure is lean and elegant. Fresh herb and tobacco scents add to the sophistication of the aroma, and while there’s a bit of cool rain in the wine, there’s also some sunniness. Enjoy this over the next year or two with a salad of duck confit.
According to The Tasting Panel - Smooth and juicy with tangy acidity and long, lively flavors of plum and spice; fresh and long; an impressive showing for Spottswoode's second label. 14.1% ABV.
