A classically beautiful Oakville Cabernet, this wine has an intense opaque and violet color with tinges of ruby on its edge. Fresh aromas of black cherry, Crème de Violette, and rosewater bring thoughts of fruit followed by intense roasted spices and dark chocolate with hints of truffle. The palate is rich yet balanced with layers of texture, silk-like tannins and a long finish, with licorice and vanilla spice adding complexity to this powerful wine. The 2010 Samantha's will continue to improve for 8 to 10 years

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's is all about structured, power and tension. A big, rich wine, the 2010 is endowed with serious depth and the formidable structure of the vintage. Blueberries, black currants, graphite, licorice and tar burst from the glass as the 2010 shows off its hugely appealing personality. Today, the 2010 is incredibly tense and tight, but all it needs is time for the Oakville pedigree to shine at its brightest. The Rudd team has done a great job in refocusing the estate's wines. The Samantha's appears to be the last piece in the puzzle.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's, a 736-case blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Malbec and 6% Merlot, reveals classic dusty, loamy notes intermixed with black currants, tobacco leaf, licorice and melted asphalt. Medium to full-bodied and supple, it is best drunk over the next 10-12 years.

Focused on well-defined dark berry, fresh earth, cedar, dried herb and cigar box flavors, with firm, gripping tannins. The fruit core drives through to the finish. Drink now through 2022. 736 cases made.
