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