"Made from 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc, the 1993 was the beginning of a slow decline in production, as the vineyard had to be totally replanted, as the AXR1 rootstocks were not phylloxera-resistant. Production was down to 4,500 cases. This was one of the last wines of five vintages made at Rombauer Vineyards. The wine is a more monolithic style of Spottswoode, with a dark garnet/plum color, notes of subtle smoke, earth, underbrush, blackcurrants and plum. It had medium body, but lacks the complexity, nuance and overall fragrance of the top years. Nevertheless, it is a solidly constructed, chunky wine from Spottswoode that will continue to drink well for up to another 8-10 years." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Aug 2016)
