Notes from the Winemaker:
An authentic expression of a unique place, the Rudd Oakville Estate Red transcends grape variety with a profound expression of vintage and site from mature vines in the Estate’s complementary terroirs of core stone volcanics and alluvial fan. Composed for ageability, harmony, finesse and longevity, the Rudd Oakville Estate Red is the pinnacle of what the Oakville Estate produces in each vintage.

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.

Blended of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec, the 2015 Oakville Estate Proprietary Red Wine has a very deep purple-black color and is scented of freshly crushed black currants, blackberries and black cherries with touches of cedar chest, pencil lead, menthol, Chinese five spice and violets, plus a waft of sandalwood. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is very finely crafted with amazing freshness and vivacity, framed by firm, ripe, fine-grained tannins and finishing with lingering exotic spice notes. 758 cases were made.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's is magnificent. Powerful and sumptuous, with stunning inner perfume and sweetness, the 2016 is simply thrilling to taste. Bittersweet chocolate, plum, black cherry, lavender, spice and new leather take on added shades of richness and texture in this towering, explosive Cabernet Sauvignon. Swaths of tannin build as this striking wine gains volume and intensity with air. In a word: superb!

Antonio Galloni, December 2018
