2015 Rudd "Samantha's" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1418186 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's Estate is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot that spent 21 months in 97% new French oak. This beauty just jumps from the glass with its crème de cassis, liquid violet, lead pencil, chocolate and graphite. Rich, concentrated, gorgeously balanced, opulent, and heavenly in just about every way, it gives the Estate Cuvee a run for its money and is more than worth your time and money. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's gives a deep garnet-purple color and delivers a pleasantly meaty nose of beef drippings and charcuterie with underlying baked cherries, red and black currant notions and a waft of cigar boxes. Full-bodied and firmly structured with chewy tannins and compelling freshness, the palate features loads of savory black and red fruit flavors and a nice long finish. 549 cases were made. Located in what Robert Parker refers to as the "tenderloin" of the Oakville corridor within the Plumpjack, Dalla Valle and Screaming Eagle neighborhood, considerable measures have been taken at Rudd’s vineyard in recent years to lift the quality of the Oakville Estate wine to its true potential. Expect this incredibly well-placed estate to be giving its illustrious neighbors a run for their money in years to come. (LPB) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Black cherry, plum, chocolate, spice and menthol infuse the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's. Pliant, supple and forward, the 2015 offers notable fruit intensity and voluptuousness in a rich, dense style. Objectively, what the 2015 needs is more persistence and follow through from start to finish, and perhaps a bit less new oak. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is full of boysenberry, fig and blackberry compote flavors, laced with licorice root and roasted apple wood notes, all carried by a swath of loamy grip through the finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (7/2019)
