Deep, dark, juicy flavors of cassis and black cherries on entry are balanced by espresso, berry pie, and baking spice. The lavish finish unfolds with deep, round tannins, balanced by jubilant acidity with nuances of espresso and mocha.

93 points Vinous  "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has turned out beautifully. Dark, sumptuous and powerful, the 2015 is a super-attractive wine. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, mint, and pomegranate are woven together in a racy Cabernet with no hard edges, good freshness for the year and terrific overall balance. Silky, polished tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. The Reserve can get a bit lost in Round Pond's range, but it is arguably the wine that best captures the personality of this Rutherford site." -Antonio Galloni, March 2018


91 points Wine Spectator Exhibits a mix of creamy oak, dense dark berry, mocha, graphite and cedar flavors. At points this is smooth and supple, yet also shows a tannic backbone. Impressive finish. Drink now through 2028. - James Laube, September 2018
