RuddOakville Estate Red 2016

$265.00 750ml
Rudd Oakville Estate Red 2016 - K. Laz Wine Collection
A vintage with few heat spikes and ideal weather throughout the growing season, Winemaker Frederick Ammons has produced a 2016 Oakville Estate Red that offers concentration and finesse from this east Oakville estate vineyard. Gorgeous upon opening, “the 2016 continually reveals a new layer of expression after opening. Initially somewhat coy and restrained, the nose blossoms with aeration, developing iron and raspberry notes before showing its true character with cassis — the signature aromatic of great Cabernet Sauvignon. Shapely, fine-grained tannins are mouth-filling, while the acidity present gives backbone, direction, and freshness with an integrated and harmonious density.” Comprised of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, Frederick enhanced this Red with 8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.
