Rudd Crossroads Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
Made entirely from estate-grown organically farmed grapes, including 14% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot, this is a dense expression of brambly blackberry, strawberry and darker notions of tobacco and toasted oak. It has a beautiful bouquet of earthy tobacco and iron, powerful yet structured and dazzling in spice and dried herb. Enjoy 2026-2030.
Warm and inviting, featuring plum sauce and blackberry puree flavors that swirl through, infused with gently singed alder, tobacco and sagebrush notes. Reveals an echo of loam through the persistent finish, with the fruit easily holding the upper hand. A textbook Oakville Cabernet. Best from 2020 through 2027. 620 cases made.
