Rudd Crossroads Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
The 2019 Crossroads Cabernet Sauvignon is energetic, lively, and bursting to show you everything it has to offer. This vintage expression of Cabernet Sauvignon fills your nose with black cherries, dark cocoa nib, and a hint of baked sweetness. These familiar aromas from our Oakville Estate are also found on the first sip, with a pop of ripe plum and savory cooking herbs that are reminiscent of the fresh outdoors on a trek through the Tahoe mountains. That combination of luscious fruit and fresh herbs is completed by the plush, velvety tannins on the finish. With every sip, the 2019 Crossroads Cabernet Sauvignon shows how a well-crafted companion wine should taste — balanced, structured, and unbelievably delicious. Do not hesitate to enjoy upon release!
This wine offers outstanding quality at a fair price, juicy and inviting in raspberry and dark cherry, with approachable structure and enduring grace. Herbal and earthy, it has length and breadth on the palate, with a velvety texture and undoubtable balance, finishing in a bite of dark chocolate.
A solid, direct style, with red and black currant preserves that meld steadily into a backdrop of singed vanilla, cedar and warm earth. Features flashes of humus and menthol, too, which provide range. Drink now through 2032. 3,420 cases made.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold, fruity wine with good depth in its dark cherry fruit, chocolate, licorice, spice and tobacco. Drink it over the next year or two.
