Winemaker's Notes

The 9th release from the Rudd Estate on the Eastern Oakville Bench is a blockbuster. This is one of the rare vintages when all aspects of weather, farming and soils worked harmoniously. This is a wine with plenty of charm and elegance and also has the structure to age gracefully for decades.

    robert parker-99 Wine Spectator Insider’s review from James Laube on the 2008 Rudd Oakville Estate Proprietary Red. He wrote: “The best red I’ve tasted from Rudd, this is pure, deep, rich and concentrated, with firm, spicy currant and creamy mocha-laced oak. Firms nicely on the finish, where the tannins are grainy and add traction. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2014 through 2028.—J.L.”
