Rudd Oakville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
Winery Notes :
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 drinkablity. A wine finesse, yet generous, the 2014 Rudd Oakville Estate Samantha's Cabernet Sauvignon is enjoyable now with and will continue to develop in complexity with 4-15 years of cellaring.
The 2014 Samantha's is cut from the same mold as the 2013, just denser, with slightly less tannin and a reticent character, but it is loaded with upside potential. Give this wine 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25 years.
