Really nice. Very youthful and vibrant. From a good vintage comes a really nice wine with lots of blackberry and ample weight in the front and sort of a truffle chocolate texture somewhere in the middle. Excellent structure. Hint of pepper on the finish. Tannins have really started to integrate in this wine but still with rather youthful influence here. Would go well with a nice filet mignon. I'd say it is definitely time to start consider drinking these if you have them although I think the structure is there to last another 5 to 7 years.

Great, structured but uncomplicated, outstanding US claret. Black currant, black cherry, licorice, with tobacco that lead to a massively solid structure. Easily has another 10-15 years. A long and tannic finish.

Smoooooth. My first Rudd- inspired by @David A Lentine. Pretty amazing for a 15 year old. Musty nose, ripe blue fruit, finish is still very long. Won't be my last!
