Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

Intense, vibrant, rich and expansive, with tiers of tightly focused currant, plum and black cherry fruit that's elegantly styled and full-bodied, both powerful and restrained. A tour-de-force Cabernet with a smile. 135 cases made.

Vinfolio | Rating: 93

A very good debut for Jeff Ames. The nose has slightly smoky blackberry and creamy blueberry. The palate shows saturated, dense chocolate, currant and dark berry with velvety tannins.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
