    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2006 Rudd Oakville Estate Proprietary Red covers the broadest spectrum of flavors to date, combining dark, blue fruits such as black currant and dark berry aromas, and cedar on the nose. The palate shows structure and acidity followed by layers of velvety tannins with chocolate and deep roasted coffee. It ably carries our tradition of producing wines with exceptional power, depth and clarity.

    Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon; 9% Cabernet Franc; 8 % Malbec; 3% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    The brilliant 2006 Proprietary Red Oakville Estate is a 1,890-case blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. Its dense purple color is followed by a sweet nose of charcoal, scorched earth, blackberries, blueberries, cigar tobacco, and cedar. Full-bodied with a sumptuous mouthfeel as well as ripe, noble tannins, this gorgeous red can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more.
