Southern Napa has a large selection of Cabernet Sauvignon. There is a reason it's the world’s most popular red wine grape. It is a natural cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux, France. Cabernet Sauvignon is loved for its high concentration and age worthiness.
The color is bright and deep. Purple edges with deep red middle. The nose is immediately fruit driven. Ripe raspberries, black cherry and plum. In other words it smells just like a Cabernet grape. In the mouth complexity is the key. Lush ripe cherries and ripe blue berries on the front of the tongue. The mid mouth is all about power and richness. Comprised of dark plum and chocolate. The finish has supple round tannins with a long elegant finish. Hmm hmm hmm Drink now or over the next 10 years if you can wait that long!

96 Points by Robert Parker
A grape variety ideally suited for Oakville, the Samantha’s Cabernet Sauvignon is a selection of Rudd Oakville Estate blocks that yield grapes of depth and character that craft a wine inviting drinkability and conviviality. An expression of how a world-class grape variety can perform when diligently farmed in one of the best parts of Oakville.
The grapes were hand harvested, then crushed into a stainless fermentor. 24 hours later, the must was inoculated with FX-10 yeast then pumped over daily for 15 days prior to pressing. After completion of malo-lactic fermentation, this cabernet sauvignon was aged for 27 months in French and Hungarian oak then blended with 5% Merlot & 5% Tannat prior to bottling.
Intense aromas of red plum, black cherry and dark chocolate with wisps of cinnamon are complimented by a background of subtle oak. Rich flavors with layers of large, soft tannins interlocking with complex oak tannins for a long, elegant finish.
While enjoyable now, this Cabernet Sauvignon will continue to improve with proper cellaring for another 4-8 years in the bottle with a plateau of best drinkability from 2023-2028.
The nose shows abundant red fruits, lots of bright cherry along with bramble-berries, such as blackberry, cranberry, mulberry, and framed with hints of mineral/herbal characters such as graphite, cedar, and pencil shavings. The palate is vibrant and fresh, with light tannin and beautiful acidity.
This is a sturdy, full-bodied wine that offers up aromas of ripe plum and cherry laced with dried green herbs and a savory streak of raw meat and mushrooms. The savory, drying tannins pack a punch, but the acidity and fruit weight back it up. It finishes on a note of tangy blueberry. Drink now–2023.
