Round Pond Estate – Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 – Rutherford – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, juicy and slightly fleshy. It reveals notes of fleshy blueberry and juicy Quetsche plum associated with slight touches of ripe fleshy wild strawberry, liquorice, cornflower as well as slight toasted hints. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, silky and offers a nice acid frame, minerality, juiciness, fleshiness as well as suavity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blueberry, fleshy plum and touches of wild raspberry associated with a subtle hint of redcurrant, discreet hints of blond tobacco, cornflower, nutmeg as well as a subtle hint of sweet spices (in the background). Tannins are well-built, a bit firm and tight.
