Expert Reviews

91 Points | Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine
89 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2003

($100; a blend of 53% cabernet sauvignon, 29% merlot, 17% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot) Slightly porty aromas of candied black cherry, licorice, fresh herbs, menthol, exotic spices and soy sauce. Supple in the middle, with a restrained sweetness. Slightly medicinal flavors of cooked plum and meat. Lacks generosity but finishes with sweet tannins for a 2000.

There is a lot of hype out there on 2000 and it is true...but granted it depends always upon the blend and how it was crafted. Rudd Vineyard pulled it off...Give this a quick vertical with their 2001 full cab and take notes.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
