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. 94 Points Antonio Galloni: "Herbs, tobacco, cedar, iron, smoke and incense emerge from the glass in the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. A gorgeous, savory and totally expressive wine, the 2011 impresses for its balance and pedigree. This is without question one of the most beautiful wines of the year. The profile is decidedly European-influenced in its aromatics and structure, but the fruit is pure Napa Valley. There are only a handful of values left in first-class Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon; this is one of them." Wine Enthusiast: "...this is a lovely Cabernet to drink now."
So creamy and lush. My kind of cab. Perfect with my favorite barbecue ribs.
