About

94

"Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, chocolate, gravel and mineral notes are all delineated in a wine with distinct Rutherford personality. Firm, dusty tannins support the long finish. The 2013 can be enjoyed now, but it will be even better in time.

Round Pond continues to impress. Winemaker Muiris Griffin crafts these Cabernets in a contemporary classic style that is super appealing. Thomas Rivers Brown is the consultant, but this is the only project Brown works with as a true outside consultant rather than as a winemaker. Above all else, this Rutherford site sits on prized dirt, and that is exactly what comes through in the Round Pond wines. In a word: pedigree. Round Pond remains one of real undiscovered jewels of Napa Valley"

"As for the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, this Rutherford cuvée is a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah. Supple fruit, again black cherry liqueur, licorice, spice box and blacker fruits cascade over the palate in this medium to full-bodied, beautifully made, pure wine. Drink it over the next 15-20 years."

Product Description:

"Made with a selection of the best quality from our Rutherford vineyards, this wine is deep, dark, and complex. This wine exhibits aromas of dark fruit with layers of mint, rosemary, and eucalyptus. With an impressive, suede-like tannic structure, the entry of ripe red fruit gives way to more savory notes of tobacco leaf, cedar, and allspice. Intense richness on the finish is balanced with natural fruit acidity, leaving you with notes of black cherry and toasted almond. This wine shows great aging potential." -Winery
