Description

Red Wine by Rudd from Napa Valley, California. A vintage with few heat spikes and ideal weather throughout the growing season, the core of the 2016 indicates a true classic offering with concentration, finesse, and agreeability. The deep, rich color suggests the wine’s density and depth, while its purple-violet edges are telling of the natural acidity and vivacity. Suggesting its aging potential, the 2016 continually reveals a new layer of expression after opening. Initially somewhat coy and restrained, the nose blossoms with aeration, developing iron and raspberry notes before showing its true character with cassis – the signature aromatic of great Cabernet Sauvignon. Shapely, fine-grained tannins are mouth-filling, while the acidity present gives backbone, direction, and freshness with an integrated and harmonious density. 2016 stands as an example of how wines with great potential for aging are, at the same time, a pleasure in their youth at release. Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot
