- 95 Punkte und "Cellar Selection" WINE ENTHUSIAST: "This wine employs 73% Spottswoode Estate Vineyard fruit, but also ventures to other sites, including Young Inglewood, Oakville Ranch and Darms Lane. Dusty cedar, blackberry and pencil shavings dot a structured, classically stylized landscape, additionally seasoned in black pepper and clove. It has length for miles; enjoy best 2023 through 2033."
- 96 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Fantastic aromas of blueberry, blackberry, violets, black licorice and stones. Full-bodied, firm, silky, and fresh. Very long and balanced. Beautiful tannins. All in harmony. Drink in 2019."
- INTERNATIONAL WINEREPORT: "The 2013 Lyndenhurst Vineyard is a fantastic blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with small percentages of Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Most of the fruit was sourced from the Spottswoode Estate Vineyard, while the remaining percentage was sourced from Darms Lane, Oakville Ranch, Knightsbridge, and Young Inglewood Vineyards. This spent 20 months in French Oak barrels and offers aromas of ripe blackberries, dark cherries along with leather, spices, anise and spring floral. This full-bodied Cabernet shows remarkable overall depth with a gorgeous rich, polished texture. While this already displays early appeal, it would be best if allowed some additional bottle age to further develop. (Best 2018-2029)"

|Notizen des Weinguts:||Another product of the phenomenal 2013 vintage, this is quite simply an incredible Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, offering a wine made with the same care and intention as our Spottswoode Cabernet. Made predominantly from our own estate grapes, the Lyndenhurst offers another compelling expression of our famed Spottswoode Estate Vineyard. This wine was made using 73% fruit from our own estate as well as grapes carefully selected from a handful of conscientious growers who share our mindful and quality-focused approach to farming. This exceptional and highly regarded wine has the depth and complexity to age gracefully—it is a bright and beautifully balanced Napa Valley Cabernet with abundant youthful appeal. Winemaker Notes: Firm, youthful, juicy, fresh blackberries, black cherries and rose petals with coffee and dark chocolate. Dense and rich. Expressive. Great freshness and vivacity with a corresponding richness and power. Cedar with some cream and graham cracker crust. A long finish. Impressive and exceptional—a great deal of potential. We have great enthusiasm for this wine!|
