Rudd Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's Oakville Estate 2013
WA92: The other red wine Leslie Rudd makes with his daughter Samantha is their Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha’s has a dark color, notes of tobacco leaf and blackberries, a touch of espresso, and a rich, full-bodied, luscious style. This is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, although some Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec are added.
WS92: Dense, rich and powerful, yet with a seam of suppleness that gives the potent dark berry, mineral, graphite and cedary flavors a measure of finesse and refinement.
