The Rudd winery and estate vineyard are located on a 55-acre strip of land in what is perhaps the most exclusive two-square-mile winegrowing region outside of France: Napa’s Oakville appellation, which is also home to Screaming Eagle and Dalla Valle. To this enviable address, owner Leslie Rudd added an enviable vineyard manager, industry legend David Abreu, who cultivated the grapes that went into this dense, black, and powerful world-class Bordeaux blend.
