2008 Round Pond "Estate" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1064744 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Quite a good Cabernet, virgorous and dry, with an earthy edge of sweet, dried herbs alongside the blackberries and cedar. More elegant and food-friendly than many of the fruitier, high alcohol, oaky Cabs out there. Inner quote mark (6/2011)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows taut herb- and cedar-laced blackberry and wild berry flavors that firm up and give this a chewy, minerally aftertaste. Not quite up to the 2007, but impressive nonetheless. Best from 2012 through 2020. Inner quote mark (6/2011)

K&L Notes

This is Round Pond's flagship Cab, coming entirely from their estate in the heart of Rutherford. It has slight herbaceous elements on its spicy nose, which match the cherry, cranberry and red currant fruits perfectly. There's pinpoint focus to the fruit in the mouth, with hints of cola, brown sugar, cocoa powder and cigar box. Everything is in sync here. This well-knit wine drinks well now with some air--it's quite food friendly--but also has the structure to cellar remarkably well.
