Notes from the Winemaker:

Layered fruit aromatics jump out of the glass upon approach. Mission Figs, stewed strawberries, and dried cranberries are the core fruit aromas displayed by this wine. These are accentuated by Mexican cinnamon and mocha notes contributed by the French oak barrels. The first sip is inviting and enticing. The entry has a soft, chamois like smoothness to the mouth feel. Flavors of dried cherries, strawberry rhubarb and graham cracker are apparent. The wine’s finish is emblematic of Rutherford’s dusty coco powder like tannins.

4 of 5 Delicious, high-end quality/taste for $30 Napa Cab October 22, 2011
Reviewer: Chris B. from Santa Clara, CA  
Rising star Round Pond has produced solid wines, especially Cabs, for the past few years and the 2009 Napa Cabernet continues that trend at an affordable price.

Made from mostly Rutherford estate fruit, with next door neighbors including Caymus and Rubicon, this Cab exhibits amazing balance in its combination of oak, fruit, complexity and tannins. This wine is aged in 2nd year French oak barrels, which frames the wine yet really allows the rich, ripe, dark fruit to stand out and not be over-oaked. Classic Rutherford "dust" and fine tannins provide a great, coating mouthfeel.  This Cab also features complex flavors of espresso, mocha, earth, and tobacco to accompany the fruit and structure.

For this price, my expectations were greatly exceeded. Delicious!
