Sold Out! Sorry to all of those shut out. This one went quickly…
The story behind Round Pond is that they were really a family of Rutherford growers/farmers who fell into making their own wine. For years they sold off all of their Rutherford Estate Cab to their neighbors (take a look at a map and you’ll find they’re surrounded by the likes of Frogs Leap, Caymus, Honig, Beckstoffer, etc) but one year they decided to hold a little back to make wine for friends & family (kith and kin, to which their entry level wine pays homage.) That enterprise grew until they had some of Napa’s most talented consulting winemakers (Thomas Rivers Brown for one) making wine off these exemplary Rutherford lots.
This is their Estate wine, fully farmed off the property immediately surrounding their winery and tasting room in the heart of Rutherford. 2014 was in a stretch of several draught years, so the wine was richly concentrated and dark fruited, With a great cocoa finish and a backbone of acid that will help it hold up for some years to come.
Not only is this Cab drinking excellent right now, for THIS WEEKEND ONLY, it’s available for just $39/btl, $25/btl below the $64 online average price and well below $58.99, the lowest price online. How can we do it? Well with only 84 bottles available, I’m sure every last bottle will be spoken for before anyone even knows what happened.
Nicholas Tasting Note:
The 2014 Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon is a massive, sleeping giant that is showing great after six years of slumber. Deep, dark purple to the rim, the wine builds with jammy dark fruits, big, supple tannins and good acidity to allow for great aging. Its texture and finish display the signature, leathery Rutherford style. This will be an excellent wine for the better part of the next two decades.
