Expert Reviews

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , 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.

Superb - drinking well now but could probably hold for at least a few more years

Varietal Image
Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
