2019 Round Pond 'Estate' Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford

$84.95

Our flagship Estate Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with alluring aromas of bright red fruit with a hint of dark fruit and cherry cordial. Soft and approachable, this wine shows essences of sweet spices and cocoa that marry well with its bright acidity and evolving tannins. Following through with red licorice, muddled strawberry and a mouth-watering finish, it perfectly summarizes the diverse flavors found on our Rutherford Estate and Oakville vineyards. This Cabernet Sauvignon is ready to be enjoyed now and will age gracefully over time.

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.

Tasting Panel 

Deep, plush and super-expressive. Black cherry, leather, spice, menthol and dried herbs are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. The 2019 Estate is shaping up to be a real jewel of a wine.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate comes from both Rutherford and Oakville, and it's another beautiful wine from this estate. Lots of pure cassis, assorted blue fruits, violets, and floral notes define the bouquet, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a pretty, elegant texture, supple tannins, and a great finish. Just classic, it’s an impeccably made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the coming 10-15 years.

Vinous

The 2019 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, plush and super-expressive. Black cherry, leather, spice, menthol and dried herbs are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. There is plenty of depth and intensity, but all the elements are so well balanced that I think the 2019 will drink well with minimal cellaring. The 2019 Estate is shaping up to be a real jewel of a wine.
