Winemaker Notes

Normally, the color of a wine is not something of note. But the rich, concentrated color the darkest of all the Rudius Cabernets released to date—gives a wonderful first impression of this wine. Aromatically, there are more floral, violet elements to this vintage than in previous years likely due to the Cabernet Franc inclusion this year. The nose also shows rich black cherry, cloves, licorice, melted dark chocolate and even a hint of dry aged steak. On the palate, this wine is slanted toward the dark flavor spectrum showing braised meats, BBQ dry rub, blackberry, and truffles, with subtle notes of cocoa. The full, complete mouth feel, accented with smooth sweet tannins, tails off with outstanding length to a finish of roasted meats.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
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. Drink now through 2021. 320 cases made.

Rudius, California
Since its inception in 2005, Rudius has grown in production, team size, and vision. Throughout this momentum, we've remained a Cabernet-based brand with a passion for Rhones.

We're not your typical proprietors. We like to get our hands dirty in the vineyards and the cellar, thrive on taking risks that support what we believe in, and pride ourselves on remaining accessible to our community. Rudius is a true family affair — Jeff oversees every move from vine to bottle, while Britt ("the brains of the operation," as Jeff likes to say) manages everything in between. With many exciting developments on the horizon, we're thrilled to continue making and sharing exceptional wines with you for years to come.

Napa Valley

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
