2007 Rudius Cabernet Sauvignon

Another top winemaker with his own label is Jeff Ames, who trained under Thomas Brown and has been making the impressive wines at Tor Kenward Family Wines since 2003. Jeff's label is Rudius, which was originally launched as a passion project focusing on Rhone varieties in 2005. The label has grown significantly since then.

The 2007 Rudius Cabernet Sauvignon bottling is big, muscular Napa Cabernet marked by rich notes of blackberries, boysenberries, twizzlers, and coffee. But it also displays lavender and other fresh herbs, silky tannins, and bright acid. In other words, it's almost perfect!
