Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

($45; 15.5% alcohol) Bright ruby. High-toned, liqueur-like aromas of black raspberry, pepper, woodsmoke, smoked meat and crushed rock. Dense, ripe, lush and seamless; packed with flamboyant flavors of raspberry, woodsmoke, fruitcake and exotic spices. This creamy, sexy syrah is like a liquid confection. Finishes long and powerful; manages to hold its alcohol but I'd still want to enjoy this on the early side.

One of three sites Rudius uses from Alder Springs and is the only one using 100% new oak. A peppercorn and smooth bacon fat, blackberry puree nose. The palate has solid fruit of saturated blackberry and more solid stone fruits on finish.

About This Producer


Rudius is the ancient Roman word for a wooden sword that was used by soldiers and gladiators during their training. Traditionally, a rudius was given to gladiators when they had won their freedom from the arena. Winemaker Jeff Ames views his own project as freedom to pursue his style of winemaking, after working on other labels over the past years. Ames focuses on Grenache and Syrah from Russian River. Production is under 200 cases each.
