Notes from the Winemaker:
A grape variety ideally suited for Oakville, the Samantha's Cabernet Sauvignon is a selection of Rudd Oakville Estate blocks that yield grapes of depth and character that craft a wine inviting drinkability and conviviality. An expression of how a world-class grape variety can perform when diligently farmed in one of the best parts of Oakville.

Ratings & Reviews

94+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Samantha's is cut from the same mold as the 2013, just denser, with slightly less tannin and a reticent character, but it is loaded with upside potential. Give this wine 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Dec 2016)

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Coming all from estate fruit and made from 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's Estate is a charming, ripe, sexy beauty that's loaded with notions of blackcurrants, spicy oak, and lead pencil-like aromas and flavors. Ripe, opulent, and much more forward and sexy than the Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, drink it over the coming 15-20 years." (Dec 2017)

93 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's is another impeccable wine from Rudd. Stylistically, the Samantha's is more supple and open-knit than the Estate Red. Dark stone fruits, mocha, torrefaction and chocolate give the wine its sumptuous, racy personality. It should drink well with minimal cellaring." (Dec 2016)
