Notes from the Winemaker:
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.

Ratings & Reviews

98+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Blended of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec, the 2015 Oakville Estate Proprietary Red Wine has a very deep purple-black color and is scented of freshly crushed black currants, blackberries and black cherries with touches of cedar chest, pencil lead, menthol, Chinese five spice and violets, plus a waft of sandalwood. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is very finely crafted with amazing freshness and vivacity, framed by firm, ripe, fine-grained tannins and finishing with lingering exotic spice notes. 758 cases were made." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (29th Dec 2017)

94 Points - Vinous:

"The 2015 Oakville Estate Red is terrific. Rich, sumptuous and racy to the core, the Estate Red offers up a super-appealing melange of red cherry fruit, espresso, mint, spice and new leather. This is one of more medium-bodied wines of the vintage. Soft contours and silky tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. The 2015 has come together very nicely over the last year. Today, the new oak (95%) is a bit evident, but that should not be an issue over time." - Antonio Galloni (Mar 2018)
