Round Pond Rutherford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
Features a dense and loamy tack, with dark plum, blackberry and red currant flavors mixed with ganache, roasted alder and tobacco notes. Shows a strong tug of earth on the finish, though the fruit keeps pace. Best from 2020 through 2027. 5,300 cases made.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec and 1% Merlot. Deep purple-black in color, it has a nose of tar, earth and smoked meats over cassis and plums plus a hint of fried herbs. The palate is full-bodied and very savory with good concentration.
