Round Pond Estate – Scholar’s Gate – Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Rutherford – Napa valley Gravel Series

The nose offers a fine complexity, elegance, a slight juiciness as well as a beautiful finesse. It reveals notes of boysenberry, black plum and small notes of wild raspberry associated with small touches of red fruits as well as discreet hints of flowers, tobacco, sweet spices and a very discreet hint of nutmeg. The palate is fruity, beautifully balanced and offers juiciness, a good definition, a slight acidulous frame, a beautiful juiciness as well as minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, blackberry and small notes of wild raspberry associated with slight touches of licorice, dark chocolate and caramelized oak. Tannins are well-built. Good length. A very beautiful wine!
