Round Pond Rutherford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. This is a beautiful Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. Layers of gorgeous fruit and some kirsch liqueur followed by blacker currants and plums jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, layered and rich, this provocative wine is actually a great value considering its stunning quality. Drink it over the next 20 years.
Wine EnthusiastTangy red fruit sits atop leathery texture in this dark, brooding wine, blended with 13% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. Violets and blueberries play on the palate while integrated oak and tannin lend body and power to the proceedings. The finish is smoky.
Wine SpectatorA solid, chunky expression of extracted black licorice and dark berry flavors, with toasty, charry oak dominating. Best from 2017 through 2025. 7,200 cases made.
