The 2002 Rudy’s Cuvee (a 425-case blend of 44% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot, and 19% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a blockbuster in the making. Creme de cassis intermixed with flowers, espresso, and chocolate are offered in a full-bodied, remarkably elegant, well-delineated format. It should be drinkable young, yet keep for many years.
Deep ruby-purple color. Brooding aromas of black fruits, minerals, violet and brown spices. Lush and sweet, with terrific texture and depth. A plush, huge fruit bomb of a red that somehow carries its full load of alcohol with style. Finishes very long and smooth, with sweet tannins.
Plush, rich blackberry, cassis, currant and wild berry flavors may be too ripe and sweet for some. Borders on off-dry. For fans of optimal ripeness and sheer Cabernet power, this winds up in the winner's circle. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
