2012 Round Pond Estate Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Quick Overview

This rich and inviting wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. Complex and elegant aromatics of black cherry, ripe strawberries and raspberry tart are complimented by nuances of cola, vanilla, licorice and dusty cocoa. On entry, the palate is loaded with intense candied fruit composed of fleshy plums and ripe red berries. The mid-palate features darker fruit that give way to hints of caramel and roasted almonds with well-rounded tannins and firm acidity. Throughout the long smooth finish, notes of wet stone, dried flowers and classic Rutherford dust make this wine the perfect candidate to age gracefully over time.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 93

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford shows a black cherry and kirsch-like component often seen in top Rutherford Cabernets, with an almost Margaux-like delicacy and a dense ruby/purple color. It has a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannins, beautiful purity and texture and incremental richness that builds gently and graciously. This is a gorgeous 2012 to drink over the next 10-15 years.

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 92

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Delivers a pure, bright, supple core of wild berry, raspberry and blackberry that is intense, focused, dense and persistent. The flavors cascade on the finish, echoing mineral and crushed rock details. Drink now through 2028.
