This bright and lusciously complex wine envelops the senses with an exquisite aromatic bouquet of açaí, guava, and papaya supported by ripe nectarines, coconut, white peach, and delicate white flowers. A lively array of ripe pear, melon and stone fruits glide across the palate with delightful citrus-driven acidity balanced by soft, savory minerality. Vivacious tropical notes linger beautifully on the long, enduring, and playful finish.
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.
This is 100% stainless-steel fermented, which shows in the fresh, lively acidity that's front and center. Flinty wet-stone accents give it a bit of texture as bold flavors of lemon and mango linger on the medium-bodied palate.
