    Description

    Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 1985
    Bottle (12)


    "Dark ruby with more purple in the color, a nice layered attack with licorice, cedar wood, tobacco leaf and black and red currants, the wine has terrific aromatics and is by far the most perfumed of the first four vintages. There is a slight abruptness in the finish, no doubt caused by the noticeable acid. This was an identical blend to the 1984, with 4% Cabernet Franc with a balance of Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine still has some upside, but seems largely at its peak of deliciousness where it should stay for another 15 or so years." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #226, Aug. 2016)


    Estimate: $1,000 - $1,300.
