Round Pond 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley
Located in the acclaimed Rutherford region of Napa Valley, California, Round Pond is a family-owned and operated estate designed world-class vineyards, gardens and orchards. In an area renowned for the depth and complexity of its Cabernet Sauvignon, the extraordinary artisan olive oils, vinegars, and limited-production wines produced from the estate reflect the family’s dedication to crafting the finest specialty food items while working to preserve the natural integrity of this esteemed property. All of the fruit is organically or sustainably farmed and hand-harvested. By combining the best of the old with the best of the new, Round Pond strives to create modern classics. Robert Parker scored this 92 points saying "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford, a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec, is a beauty. It's also realistically priced by Napa standards. The wine reveals toasty oak, blackberry and cassis fruit, beautiful texture, purity and length. This is a big-time winner and should drink well for 12-15 years."
