Great boutique cabernet discovery
A fantastic new Cabernet discovery from Round Pond's Rutherford Vineyard - limited. Round Pond's 2013 Cabernet was made by winemaker Brian Brown and consulting winemaker Thomas Brown (Schrader, Outpost ) who already has two "100-point" Cabernets under his belt at Schrader Cellars. Highly recommended.
92 Points Antonio Galloni: "Round Pond's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is fabulous. Aromatic, pliant and expressive, the 2013 is incredibly nuanced for such a young wine. Sweet red plum, wild flowers, mint and cinnamon meld together in a medium-bodied, gracious Cabernet that will drink well with minimal cellaring.."
92 Points Robert Parker: "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."
