2009 Rudd "Oakville Estate" Oakville Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1126206 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Deftly balanced, this big wine offers a mix of rich, dense flavors and subtle fruit and herb nuances. The core delivers loamy earth, currant, black licorice, mocha- and cedar-laced oak and loamy tannins that let the flavors push through. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2025. (JL, Web only-2013) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Black cherry, very high tannic impact. Opulent oak on the finish. But super-ripe fruit is what this wine is mostly all about. 17+/20 (RH) Inner quote mark (11/2015)
