2015 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML

92 pts Vinous  |  90 Wine Enthusiast  |  96 Vivino 
The plush entry of ripe black cherry and blackberry pie is followed by richer tones of toffee, fresh oak and a hint of black pepper. Elegant and supple, this wine showcases a lengthy and pleasing granite-like finish.



 

This estate-grown Cabernet evolves in the glass from aromatics of wild strawberry and rhubarb to notes of red licorice and cocoa dust. The plush entry of ripe black cherry and blackberry pie on the palate is followed by richer tones of toffee, fresh oak, and a hint of black pepper. Elegant and supple, this wine shows a lengthy and pleasing granite-like finish.

 

Varietals: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot
Aging: 18 months in 60% new tight grain French oak

"Round Pond's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is attractive, even if it is at times a bit monolithic. The dark cherry, plum, smoke, menthol and tobacco flavors speak with baritone intensity. Powerful and resonant in the glass, the 2015 has more than enough depth and persistence to drink well for a number of years..." - Antonio Galloni

Vivino - 96/100 
"Round Pond’s ‘15 release is smooth and sensual, with polished black fruit—cassis, blackberry, plum, and cherry—surrounded by fine-grained tannins.  Mineral undertones linger on the finish, giving this classic take on Rutherford an intriguing edge. Built to last, the ‘15 is just getting its bearing and ready for a decade-long life, if you can resist its fruity charm.” - 96 points, Laura Burgess, WSET Advanced
