Rudd Oakville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Rudd Oakville Estate Proprietary Red (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot Merlot and Cabernet Franc) was aged 20 months in French wood. It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color followed by scents of licorice black currants underbrush charcoal and spice characteristics. With terrific fruit as well as an opulent texture it should drink well for 12-15 years.
External Reviews for Rudd Oakville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
(75% cabernet sauvignon, 14% cabernet franc, 7% merlot, and 2% each petit verdot and malbec) Bright ruby-red. Slightly liqueur-like aromas of blueberry, black cherry, dark chocolate, coffee, mocha, tobacco and menthol. Quite primary on the palate, with crushed blueberry and menthol flavors currently cut off by big, chewy, building tannins. This is the estates second wine, but winemaker Sullivan notes that Rudd still bulks out a lot of additional wine. ** SOLD OUT **
