An authentic expression of a unique place, the Rudd Oakville Estate Red transcends grape variety with a profound expression of vintage and site from mature vines in the Estate's complementary terroirs of core stone volcanics and alluvial fan. Composed for ageability, harmony, finesse and longevity, the Rudd Oakville Estate Red is the pinnacle of what the Oakville Estate produces in each vintage.
"Composed of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot and 4% Malbec, the 2007 Oakville Estate Proprietary Red Wine has a deep garnet color and slowly evolving nose of incense, new leather, spice box and dried mulberries over a core of crème de cassis, preserved plums and mocha. Full-bodied with a firm backbone of chewy tannins and great freshness, the palate gives up plenty of savory layers and finishes on a persistent pepper and spice note." 1,363 cases produced.
