This amazing bottle came out of a vintage that was remarkable for all the wrong reasons! Rain, hail, heat, and then fire? Holy smokes. Despite the chaos, Rudd Estate astounds with a Cabernet Sauvignon rich with aromatics of black cherry, currant and spice on a bed of graphite, violet and licorice.The polished balance of fruit and acidity draw out into a lingering, velvet finish. Proof that you can’t make a diamond without pressure.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is fruity, supple and easygoing, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Ripe red cherry, tobacco, cedar, plum, espresso and sweet spice all flesh out in this nuanced, inviting Cabernet.
