    "Juicy black currant, tart cranberry, licorice and clove meet a wall of toasted oak and chocolate in a medium-bodied, approachable and properly balanced expression of the variety that will impress seekers of restraint and grace." ~ Wine Enthusiast

    Wine Enthusiast: Designated Editors' Choice. "To call this a second label of Spottswoode's isn't quite fair, it's such a well-made, thoughtfully considered wine in its own right. Juicy black currant, tart cranberry, licorice and clove meet a wall of toasted oak and chocolate in a medium-bodied, approachable and properly balanced expression of the variety that will impress seekers of restraint and grace." May 2018

    James Suckling: "A rich and dense red with a powerful palate of ripe fruit and chewy tannins. Lots of blackberry and blueberry character. Expanding tannins. Needs two or three years to soften." Jan 2017

    Winery: "The 2014 Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon is fruit forward, supple, and demonstrative. Made from grapes grown in our estate vineyard along with those from other exceptional sites, Lyndenhurst is a compelling Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, bright and beautifully balanced with abundant youthful appeal—the perfect wine to drink while your Spottswoode Estate Cabernet ages gracefully in your cellar!"

    The Lyndenhurst Name: "The name Lyndenhurst comes from our Estate’s storied past—Lyndenhurst was one of the former names of the historic winegrowing property that is now known as Spottswoode. Fragrant Linden trees planted around the gazebo in the late 1800s provided the inspiration for the name, and though only the center pole of the gazebo remains, the trees still bloom in our beautiful gardens today. We chose an image of our pre-prohibition stone winery building to grace the label.

    Spottswoode’s long history as a family-owned wine estate, along with our deep winemaking expertise and passionate attention to detail, allows us to craft a Cabernet Sauvignon that is alluring, expressive, and delicious. Lyndenhurst is made with the same care and intention as our Spottswoode Estate Cabernet and offers the depth, character, and quality for which we are known."
