Rudius - 95 pointer

"Rudius Wines is the brainchild of winemaker Jeff Ames, also known as the winemaking force behind the superb wines of Tor Kenward." 

             -- Robert Parker
“In just over a decade, Ames has become one of Napa's rising stars.” 
             - Wine Spectator

2014 Rudius Field Blend Bedrock Vineyard...$39.99
Only 90 cases made
A wonderful, historical wine with spice, mosswood, mushroom and bark. Medium body, polished tannins. This is amazing. Pure strawberry. Made from a field blend of 125 year-old vines, mostly Zin with other grapes like syrah and petit syrah. Ungrated vines. Drink now.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling
A field blend of mostly Zinfandel, the 2014 Bedrock Vineyard is a seamless, opulent, incredibly sexy red from this vineyard that has classic red and black fruits, incense, cedary herbs, and spice. Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, with a ripe, heady personality that just oozes charm, drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years.
Rated 95/100 Jeb Dunnuck
