94 points James Suckling: "This shows lots of chocolate and vanilla on the nose, together with ripe dark fruit and some wet earth. Floral undertones, too. Full-bodied and balanced with a meaty structure and ripe tannin. Yet, it’s easy to drink with a medium, fruity finish. Tight, dry and firm at the end. Modern and poised. Try from 2023. (10/14/21)"

93 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst is composed of 77.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.4% Cabernet Franc, 4.1% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot and 3.8% Malbec. Deep garnet-purple in color, it skips out of the glass with lively blueberries, redcurrants and kirsch scents, plus hints of cedar chest, fragrant earth and rose hip tea. Medium-bodied, elegant and lively in the mouth, the palate is chock-full of bright and crunchy red and black fruits, finishing long and earthy. Drink: 2022-2038. (Nov 2021)"

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The second wine of the estate is the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst, and it unquestionably offers a touch of Spottswoode class and elegance, revealing a great nose of darker fruits, spice, tobacco, and new leather. This medium-bodied, pretty, elegant wine is ideal for drinking while you give the Grand Vin a few years in the cellar. This cuvée is 77.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.4% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and the balance Petit Verdot, raised in 95% French oak and 5% Hungarian oak, 65% being new. (May 2022)."

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst is an aromatic, silky Cabernet that will drink well with minimal cellaring. All the Spottswoode signatures are present, but in a smaller scale, which works perfectly for more near and medium-term drinking. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint, blood orange and spice all grace this supple, mid-weight Cabernet from Spottswoode. The 2019 is beautifully done. Bright floral and spice notes linger effortlessly. (Jan 2022)" Producer notes: "77.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.4% Cabernet Franc, 4.1% Petit Verdot, 3.8% Malbec, 5% Merlot. Fresh notes of crushed bramble, cassis, and red cherries underpin subtle aromas of lavender, cedar, and spruce. Mineral nuances of wet slate add structure, while the tannins remain silky and supple despite the wine’s youth. A beautiful wine to be enjoyed now and for years to come."
