Rudd 'Samantha’s' Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Winemaker Frederick Ammons has produced an exceptional Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon from this special 40-acre estate vineyard. I recently offered this wine in one of our tastings and it was truly the best wine showing in a very impressive line-up of Cabernets. It is everything you would hope for in a great Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark in color with violet edges, 'the aromatics express pure, Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon characteristics with cassis fruit, hints of dried rosemary and freshly dug earth, suggesting an iron/rust element. On the mouth a fresh entry with ripe tannins and acid crescendos with liveliness and inviting drinkability.' A wine of finesse, yet generous, this 2014 is enjoyable now and will continue to develop in complexity with 4-15 years of cellaring.
