Rudd Samantha's Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$169

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's is made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 21 months in 86% new French oak. This is a vineyard selection blend usually harvested slightly later. Very deep purple-black in color, it leaps from the glass with vibrant cassis, blackberry pie and preserved plums scents with nuances of mocha, pencil shavings, menthol, lilacs and cloves plus a touch of chargrilled meat. The medium to full-bodied palate is super intense with layer upon layer of black fruits, savory and floral notions and a rock-solid foundation of grainy tannins, finishing very long and very minerally. 698 cases produced.

Joe D'Angelo Delectable Pro

The 2016 'Samantha’s' Cabernet Sauvignon is absolutely stunning. It instantly begins with an impressive dark inky color, followed by extremely expressive aromatics of ripe blackberries and cassis woven together with graphite, fresh violets, earthy minerals, along with underlying mocha and smoke nuances all emerging from the glass. On the palate this possesses wonderful full-bodied richness, yet demonstrates remarkable overall balance and poise. It goes on to impress with its remarkable depth and concentration, as layers of fresh ripe dark fruits continue to build and expand on to the long supple finish. Complex, pure and totally harmonious, this utterly fascinating Cabernet from Rudd is already outstanding, yet should go on to flourish as it evolves over the course of the next two decades.
