Rudd Oakville Estate Red, Napa Valley, USA 2000
Robert ParkerThe opaque purple-colored 2000 Oakville Estate Proprietary Red (1,200 cases) reveals a gorgeous perfume of melted licorice, lead pencil shavings, black currants, white flowers, and truffles. Spicy and rich, with low acidity as well as a surprisingly sexy, deep mid-palate, it is one of the finest efforts of this difficult vintage. A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot, it is best consumed over the next 10-12 years.
WINE SPECTATORAn intense and deeply flavorful wine with a broad range of flavors that take in coffee, currant, black cherry and blackberry fruit and turns supple and polished, finishing with a long, rich aftertaste brimming with flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
VINOUS(bottled in June of 2002; 86% cabernet sauvignon, 9% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot) Saturated medium ruby. Aromas of currant, black cherry, smoked meat, truffle and loam. Lush and sweet, with a very suave texture and complex flavors of graphite, truffle and game. Dense, fat and ripe; a very successful cabernet-based wine from the 2000 vintage. The fine tannins arrive late, allowing the flavors to linger. The first vintage for the estate's flagship wine.
