Rudd Mt. Veeder Leslie’s Blend 2017, a red wine blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec, uses grapes from Mount Veeder AVA in Napa Valley. The wine has 14.80% ABV. This vintage of this particular red blend is the second vintage, the first being 2016. This wine is lush, persistent, and powerful in every way. The aromatic fruit notes of cassis and black cherry become more serious on the palate, with a resin-like freshness that is always present from Mt. Veeder Estate. Texturally bold, the tannins are tight and balanced, extending the length beyond what is expected in such a young, structured wine. Sweet cocoa and baking spices bring a completeness to the final lingering taste.
