Bright and expressive, Rudd’s Oakville Estate (77% Cabernet) beams with aromas of crushed blackcurrants and blueberries, fresh herbs, and gravel, with a lovely, cocoa-laden finish. This is a Cabernet of poise and restraint that Jeb Dunnuck has often described as “unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage,” one that will mature for decades in your cool cellar. Bravo!
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is more exuberant and sexy, with awesome notes of blueberries, blackberries, incense, violets and unsmoked tobacco. This huge, unctuous, beauty has killer purity of fruit, gorgeous mid-palate depth, sweet, sweet tannin and the succulent, sexy style of the vintage front and center. Gaining depth and richness with time in the glass, this incredible Cabernet Sauvignon will be better with 3-4 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.
