The 2017 Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is a classic example of the AVA. Their flagship wine grabs your attention with exciting aromas of dark fruits, anise, black pepper and herbs. The palate is elegant and supple, with more dark fruits on the palate showcasing blackberry and plum. Mocha and tobacco lead to a finish framed in refined tannin. Yum!
Round Pond is the epitome of the modern Napa Valley wine estate. Located at the Rutherford crossroads between Beaulieu and Caymus wineries, it's a family-owned and operated estate consisting of organically and sustainably tended vineyards, gardens and orchards. In addition to making limited quantities of world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, proprietors Ryan and Miles MacDonnell, whose parents founded Round Pond in the early 1980s, produce award-winning olive oils and prized red wine vinegars.
