Round Pond Estate 2014 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon
88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot | Alc: 14.7% – Big and Bold
Rutherford, Napa Valley, California

Winemaker’s notes:
Dark fruit intrigues with blackberry, cassis, and hints of lavender and bramble on the nose. On entry the fruit is crisp, with lively acidity that brings a beautiful freshness. Loads of black cherry and raspberry come through on the rich, full mid-palate. Bright red berries lead in to a deeply complex and balanced finish with layers of rhubarb, pepper, roasted coffee and dark chocolate. From entry to finish, the wine builds texture and lingers on the palate with a historical nod to Rutherford dust.

Critical Acclaim:
“The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a gorgeous example of both the property and the vintage. Bright floral notes and vibrant red berry fruit give the Estate much of its gracious, finely-knit personality. This is an especially nuanced, mid-weight Rutherford Cabernet, not to mention of wine of total harmony and class.” 94 Pts – Vinous / Antonio Galloni
