  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($65) Bright ruby-red. Cassis, black cherry, tar and licorice on the nose. Supple and minty on entry, then a bit tough in the middle, with modest complexity. Doesn't quite capture the potential sweetness of the vintage. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a medicinal quality.

    Though rich and extracted, this tastes earthy and funky, with a medicinal, leathery edge that gives it a dry taste.Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

    Decanted for 90 minutes and was rewarded for patience. Sleek wine with very nice finish. The 05s from Rudd have certainly improved with bot age.

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.
