Product Overview

The 2018 Round Pond Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (formerly known as the Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon in previous vintages) is a true reflection of that signature Rutherford dust and embodies an old world meets new world style. Sourced from the winery's Rutherford Estate and Oakville vineyards, the wine bursts from the glass with alluring aromas of clean, bright fruit such as pomegranate and crushed raspberry. Creamy, rich, and generous, this wine shows essences of sweet spices and desert sage which marry well with hints of black peppercorn and cocoa. Lively with firm, chewy tannins, this wine follows through with rich black cherry, coffee, and a pleasing, granite-like finish. This Cabernet Sauvignon is ready to be enjoyed now and will age gracefully over time.

Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Farming Practices: Sustainable
Aging: 20 months in French oak, 65% new

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Lots of lightly mulled raspberry, bitter plum and red currant fruit forms the core, while racy floral, cedar and savory hints streak the finish, with ample grip for cellaring. Drink now through 2032. 3,006 cases made." -JM, 8/31/21

91 Points - Vinous
"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is the first vintage that incorporates fruit from both the Round Pond Estate and a dollop from Mbar Ranch in Oakville. It is elegant and gracious, with tons of class and lovely red fruit purity. The Estate bottling replaces the Rutherford Cabernet in the range." -AG, Jan/2021
