Constantly developing nose. Initial aromas of blackberry/raspberry pie and sweet coffee giving way to a dark floral character, then herbs and spice, and finally a sharp burst of white flowers and citrus. Deep garnet ox blood. Up front berries revealing pink peppercorn, mild licorice and (after two hours decanted) pencil lead and chocolate. Seemed initially thin on palate, becoming fuller as time went by.

About This Producer


Leslie Rudd, manager of Standard Beverage Corporation and Chairman of Dean & DeLuca, turned his attention to making his mark in the wine industry in 1996. He purchased a 55-acre estate in Oakville and put his substantial resources behind replanting the site, raising the bar of quality at every turn. Joining Rudd in this endeavor are Charles Thomas, former winemaker at Mondovi and Cardinale, and Terry Mathison, who has been hailed for his innovative viticultural practices. Fewer than 6000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon, a Cabernet-based blend, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay are produced at this estate.
