($130) Deep ruby-red. Superripe aromas of black fruits, licorice, mocha and espresso; not currently showing the classic floral character of this wine, despite the presence of 12% cabernet franc. Big, broad, chewy and dry, with cassis and boysenberry fruit flavors currently in the background. Finishes quite tannic and a tad dry. This was bottled late, in December of '08, owing to its tannic structure and its tightness in barrel, according to winemaker Williams. (I once again scored the wonderfully fleshy yet suave 2005 estate cabernet 93 points. This wine may yet shut down in bottle but was smooth, sweet and captivating in March.)

There are about 500 cases of the 2006 Lyndenhurst Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc that sees about 70% new oak. It offers up beautiful supple tannins as well as notes of spring flowers interwoven with blue and black currants, and lead pencil shavings. This medium to full-bodied, lush red should age nicely for 10 years.

Drying herb, mineral and graphite join grilled meat and dried currant in this taut, tannic, structured and backward youngster. Firmly tannic and chewy, very concentrated and tightly wound.

2006: Young enough to be hard to parse, and it evolved in the glass over about 20 minutes. Blue fruit, musk and slightly drying tannins at first, with just a touch of heat and slightly muted fruit. The tannins are very fine but very broad and forceful, way too young to approach. With time, we got more racy blueberry and a beefy, raw, sanguine edge that marks what I love in Spottswoode. Drink: 2015-2026.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
