The Rudd Oakville Estate was set up in 1996 by the hugely ambitious Leslie Rudd. He was ‘hell-bent to build it into not only one of the finest in Napa Valley, but in the world’ (Robert Parker, Dec 2010, erobertparker.com) and is well on his way to fulfilling his dream, the wines are outstanding.
Healthy deep red. Good energy and nuance to the aromas of plum, currant, tobacco and milk chocolate The palate conveys an old-vines intensity and good lift to the currant and wild mint flavors. The sweetest and lushest of these 2011s to this point, finishing with firm, building tannins and very good balancing acidity.91 Points.more
