From the Critics:
- "Herbs, tobacco, cedar, iron, smoke and incense emerge from the glass in the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. A gorgeous, savory and totally expressive wine, the 2011 impresses for its balance and pedigree. This is without question one of the most beautiful wines of the year. The profile is decidedly European-influenced in its aromatics and structure, but the fruit is pure Napa Valley. There are only a handful of values left in first-class Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon; this is one of them."
"I was deeply impressed with Round Pond last year, but this year's releases are even better. At their best, the wines exude tons of Rutherford character and personality. Thomas Rivers-Brown consults for Round Pond, although winemaking is done in house. Readers who aren't familiar with Round Pond will want to check out this emerging, family-run property. The Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is easily one of the best values in Napa Valley." (11/13) -
