From the vineyards, Rudd is honored to share the much anticipated 2010 vintage that encompasses a striking combination of finesse and strength in wine. The backbone of strong tannins that round out over time and give longevity to wine, combined with a broad range and subtlety of flavor, make this vintage a beautiful example of the evolution of the wines from our estate. Each day we learn more about how our red, rocky volcanic soil perfectly complements our micro-climate and Bordeaux varietals planted in the heart of Oakville.

Wine AdvocateMore serious, substantial and complex is the 2010 Oakville Estate, a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec. This 1,000+-blend was aged in 100% new oak. It exhibits attractive notes of spring flowers, forest floor, licorice, black currants and graphite as well as medium to full-bodied, seriously endowed, beautifully pure and textured fruit notes offered in this stylish, classy, noble wine. It can be enjoyed for two decades.

Wine SpectatorOffers lots of up-front spiciness to the cherry and red berry core. This is elegant, with loamy earth, black licorice and cedar notes that gain depth and persistence, ending with firm, gravelly tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2022. 1,068 cases made.
