98 points - limited Rare release of Rudd's Oakville Estate Red. Limited. 98+ Points Robert Parker: "A barrel sample composed of a hypothetical blend of around ten different lots (final blend to be confirmed), the Rudd 2016 Oakville Estate Proprietary Red Wine has a youthfully exuberant nose of warm blueberries, black plums and licorice with touches of dark chocolate, baking spices and roses. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and drop-dead sexy, the palate reveals tons of warm black and blue fruits with a spicy undercurrent and soft, plush tannins, finishing with great length." 96 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The Riudd 2016 Oakville Estate Red is one of the very best wines I have ever tasted from Rudd. Layered, silky and exceptionally polished, the 2016 has so much to offer. Mocha, spice, menthol, plum, black cherry and gravel infuse this mid-weight, super-expressive, vibrant Oakville wine. Dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot add aromatic intensity as the wine finds a more floral and red-toned aromatic upper register with time in the glass.
