Rudd Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2012 - 6 Bottles

Price: $1,350.00

 
Winemaker note: “Dark color with violet aspect at the center suggests concentrated freshness, while the nose immediately offers both floral (violet) and fruit (blackberries and cherries) notes. The 2012 Rudd Oakville Estate Red presents a balanced texture of integrated acid with soft, fleshy tannins. Persistence and freshness are remarkable for the wine’s density and ripe aromatics. With aeration, cedar and dry rosemary aromatics become more evident, balanced by floral and fruit notes. A refined, fresh finish is accompanied by a suggestion of warm tobacco smoke and cocoa powder.”
