Rudd 2016 Crossroads Cabernet Sauvignon
Enjoying the nose, one is immediately met with fruit aromas of brambleberry and strawberry. These aromas are complemented by notes of herbs and spices that are synonomous with the estate. Across the palate, the striking liveliness and boldness of the tannins are present from beginning to end, reminding the taster of the vineyard site’s dusty red earth. A combination of savory and iron driven tones on the midpalate are another nod to the terroir, but are accompanied with the flavors of familiar red fruits, bringing a sweetness and harmony to the wine.
