First produced in 2008 and named for Leslie Rudd’s daughter, Samatha’s Block Cabernet Sauvignon is his homage to the variety that made the Napa Valley famous. From carefully selected specific sites in Rudd’s Oakville estate, this is 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. Richly textured with classic Cabernet aromatics of cassis, tobacco leaf and graphite, this wine is integrated, harmonious and persistent. Drinking well now, this wine will reward further careful cellaring over the next 5-10 years.
