Rudd Samantha's Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Rudd Samantha's Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Deep in color, with violet edges that hint at its natural acidity, the 2013 is a result of the marriage between the fragrant Cabernets that come from the Rudd alluvial fan on the north blocks and the structured, more masculine Cabernet expression from the iconic, red volcanic core stone soils. The 2013 Rudd Oakville Estate Samantha's Cabernet Sauvignon is rich in texture with classic Cabernet aromatics-freshly crushed cassis berries and warm tobacco. An integrated, harmonious evolution in mouth reveals more exotic aromatics with floral and tea notes coupled with a fresh, mineral texture. A wine with a level of precision, persistence and aging potential of 15+ years, the 2013 already reveals the exciting prom- ise of an outstanding vintage and a first glimpse into the next chapter at the Estate.

Wine AdvocateThe other red wine Leslie Rudd makes with his daughter Samantha is their Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's has a dark color, notes of tobacco leaf and blackberries, a touch of espresso, and a rich, full-bodied, luscious style. This is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, although some Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec are added. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2038.

Wine SpectatorDense, rich and powerful, yet with a seam of suppleness that gives the potent dark berry, mineral, graphite and cedary flavors a measure of finesse and refinement. Best from 2020 through 2034. 900 cases made.
