Rudd Samantha’s Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, a red wine, uses grapes sourced from Oakville AVA in Napa Valley. The wine has 14.80% ABV. A vibrant purple and magenta color, this wine looks and speaks beautifully, and resonates with all who have the opportunity to enjoy it. On the nose, aromas of sweet-smelling plum and blueberry rise from the glass. Balanced by the fresh bay leaf and charred earth aromatics. This wine’s pleasing scent translates almost identically onto the palate. Black currants, baked raspberries, and hints of rosemary bring freshness, lifting one’s taste buds immediately. This purity is complemented by the persistent and chalky tannins that continue to intensify. The mid-palate texture associated with their iron rich soils is rounded out by the dark cocoa sweetness and baking spices of their hand-selected French oak barrels.

  1. WA

    Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha’s was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels, 68% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it slips slowly out of the glass with captivating scents of black raspberries, Morello cherries, black currant pastilles and rose oil, followed by suggestions of cedar chest, pencil lead and black olives. The full-bodied palate is charged with amazing energy, featuring vivacious red and black berry layers and a firm backbone of grainy tannins, lifted by refreshing acidity and bags of crunchy fruit on the long finish.
