We’re thrilled to announce that we have a tiny allocation of Rudd’s fabulous 2015 Estate Cabernet – a 98+ point thrill ride that has gained immense critical acclaim.
Oh, and more importantly, we are selling it for the lowest price in the country. If that doesn’t catch your attention, we’re not sure what will.
Though the wines have been celebrated for some time now, Rudd is still somewhat under the radar…but not for much longer. Located in what Robert Parker has referred to as the “tenderloin” of Oakville corridor, the estate’s vineyards neighbor heavyweights Screaming Eagle and Plumpjack. More importantly Rudd’s estate director, Oscar Henquet, has gone full steam on pampering the vineyards with no expense spared. This includes a full transition to organic/biodynamic viticulture and a jaw-dropping state of the art new winemaking facility.
Needless to say, the results speak for themselves…and the critics couldn’t be happier. Antonio Galloni does not waste any time emphasizing just how special the 2015 bottling of Rudd’s Estate Cabernet is: “The 2015 Oakville Estate Red is dark, sumptuous and inviting. It could also turn out to be one of the best wines Frederick Ammons has made at Rudd …” Robert Parker went out of his way to single out this 2015 as well: “a massively intense, rich, full-bodied classic that may turn out to be Rudd’s finest red wine to date – high praise!”
California collectors–especially fans of Plumpjack and Screaming Eagle–deserve to witness this historic experience from this hallowed estate!
2015 Rudd Estate Oakville Estate Proprietary Red Wine
“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.“ 98 + Points, Wine Advocate
