RUDD 2015 Oakville Estate Red Napa Valley
99 Points - Jeb Dunnuck - "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 a succulent, sexy style of 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."
98+ Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "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 crusted 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."
