92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2004
($75; includes 15% cabernet franc) Good full ruby. Superripe aromas of blackcurrant syrup, chocolate, tar and fruit cake. Dense, tarry and sweet, with cassis, licorice and fruit cake flavors. The building tannins are substantial and broad but not at all dry. Already delicious, but has the spine to develop in bottle for a decade or more. Rudd's 2001s were vinified by David Ramey but finished by Charles Thomas, who assumed winemaking responsibilities here in the spring of 2002.
