Round Pond, in Napa Valley’s Rutherford area, is primarily a Cabernet Sauvignon producer with affordability squarely in mind. We sampled the newly-released 2010 vintage of its flagship, Napa-sourced Cab.
This wine is light and very fruity, with almost no tannin to concern itself with. Ample strawberry and blueberry character, freshly juiced and jammed, dominate the body. The finish: Short, sweet, and easy. No concerns with acid, just a lush and fruity Cabernet that’s easy to drink but mostly uncomplicated.
