Winemaker's Notes

The 2009 vintage celebrates 10 years of producing the Rudd Estate Red from our vineyards in Oakville. The Cabernet Sauvignon was co-fermented with Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot. We could not be more pleased with the result of this co-fermentation and the unique lot that is more than the sum of its parts.

Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Cabernet Franc, 9% Malbec, 9% Petite Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"The estate's 2009 Proprietary Red Rudd Estate wraps around the palate with silky dark fruit. Layered, sweet and sensual, the 2009 is laced with attractive scents of mocha, cloves and violets, all of which add complexity to the dark fruit. The 2009 needs a few years to soften, but ultimately it stands out for its textured personality and terrific balance. This undeniably appealing wine is likely to be at its best over the next 10-15 years, give or take. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
