Wine Enthusiast

Toasted oak aromas lead to good, ripe and focused blueberry and black cherry flavors in this full-bodied and moderately tannic wine. It has richness without fat, and spices up the dark fruits with black pepper and wisps of wood smoke.
WA 91

Wine Advocate

Round Pond's 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate features scents of cherries, caramel and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and supple in feel, with some pleasantly grainy tannins and decent grip on the finish, it's a solid effort for near-term enjoyment.
JD 92

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate comes from both Rutherford and Oakville, and it's another beautiful wine from this estate. Lots of pure cassis, assorted blue fruits, violets, and floral notes define the bouquet, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a pretty, elegant texture, supple tannins, and a great finish. Just classic, it’s an impeccably made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the coming 10-15 years.

A blend of Round Pond's estate vineyards in Rutherford and Oakville, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is deep, layered and super-expressive. This delivers the goods big time. All the elements are so well balanced. The 2021 feels just a touch compact today, but hopefully, the mid-palate will flesh out in time. Even so, there's so much to admire here. The inclusion of fruit from M-Bar makes a meaningful difference in this cuvée.
