(14.8% alcohol): Medium red-ruby. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, plum, licorice, spicecake and dark chocolate, plus hints of cola and loam. Supple and concentrated, with slightly high-toned flavors of plum, currant, cedar and brown spices. Doesn't yet deliver the complexity promised by the nose but there's no shortage of flavor intensity here. Dusty tannins call for at least a few years of cellaring.

Serves up a generous mix of fleshy blueberry, plum and black cherry fruit that's deceptively complex and subtle. Full-bodied and impressive for its early-drinking allure. Fine-grained tannins provide nice traction.

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.
