RRV and Napa Visit; 7/7/2014-8/30/2014 (Napa and Sonoma): 10th vintage of the Rutherford Cab for Round Pond. Deep black fruit aromas. More grill marks/charcoal notes than fruit up front, dark cinnamon spice.

Nose, body, color were unmistakably Napa cab. This avoided almost all of the green/underripe characteristics that some other 2011s from Napa show--maybe a hint on the nose. After an hour and a half there's a funky backend--I believe driven by barrel choice--that's fairly perfumed. I think that this will integrate over time but right now it overpowers the finish. Overall, a great value--I plan to revisit the next bottle in 3-4 years.

Nicely structured. Needs more time - still quite tannic now, and not really showing what it has. Smokey, licorice, coffee, bitter-sweet chocolate and pencil led notes. I really like this style - dark, brooding, serious and tannic. I appreciate a Napa cab like this that needs time to evolve vs. one that is built for near-term drinking.

This was an awesome bottle of wine - Galloni's big score is right on. The depth of fruit and other subtle herb & tobacco flavors plus the "Rutherford dust" in the finish were first-rate. We drank the 2011 Round Pond Estate with bourbon-marinated steak kabobs for our last home-cooked meal at West Point. One of the finest bottles that we've ever had in this price range. Will buy again and again.

From Magnum. Very nice. Excellent oak/cedar/wood flavors. Nice balance. Could have a touch more structure though. Overall very nice.

More tannic than I expected, this has quite some life to it. Old-school California Rutherford Dust. Oaky on the backend but nothing that overwhelms the plum and cassis. Classic vigor in its pencil lead piercing tanacity, lots of herbal notes in the mid-palate and beyond. Lasting flavor like the Energizer bunny. Had with a big juicy steak, a classic match "to die for" ...

Picked up for $40 at Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa. Purple-rimmed dark cranberry with copious legs. Telltale deep Rutherford dust cabernet nose is very enticing and inviting with aromas of fresh crushed blackberries. Very round, elegant and sleek in the mouth, but no lightweight. Plenty of fruit berry pie stuffing to structure the voluptuous, plump and somewhat feminine profile. This is a lovely, polished and very stylish cabernet that is quite a crowd-pleaser. 4-12-17-9: 92/100.

Last of two bottles, 9 months later. This is truly what Napa Cab is all about - everything you would expect - drinking perfectly now. Dark, brooding garnet color is matched with an earthy, leathery nose. Taste included notes of dusty graphite, black licorice, bell pepper, olallaberry fruit. It is strong enough to let you know this is a Napa Cab - it is not light at all - but it is not an in your face robust Cab. Medium, smooth tannins (as expected for 6 & 1/2 yrs) and medium finish. This is a very elegant/classy Cab that would match a lot of food, but might be a tad overpowered by spicy food, bbq, heavily tomato dishes. Went perfectly with rack of lamb with mint/pesto - covered lightly with chipotle panko crumbs. This might age a little more, but it is in a very sweet spot just now and we suggest consuming in 2014.

Dense with black fruits, faint fine tannic structure. Lots of herbal notes, some olive, lots of soy umami. Long slightly bitter burnt finish. Muscular and juicy wine but soft easy to drink texture. Classy, suave. Creamy.

Gorgeous dark purple with brilliant ruby on the inside. Milk chocolate on the nose. Notes of blueberries, steak juices. Firm, gripping tannins. Really hits my sweet spot and will likely drink well for at least 6-8 years to come. 92.

Last wine at the 2004 Anniversary of the Wine Group. Big, wonderful California Cabernet Sauvignon. Not that well received by the Europeans, but I loved it. Have to remember NOT to bring California Cabs to this group! A $50 bottle deserves a more receptive audience.

Drinking incredibly well right now. Dark ruby, smooth, with fruits of black cherry and a hint of tobacco and oak. I can't wait to see what this wine develops into, it should be spectacular.

Opened a magnum last night and agree that this needs 2-3+ more years to begin to deliver (maybe different on a 750). Out of the bottle, the wine was not at all open with some fruitiness up front, but not much richness with a chewy drying tannin finish with acid & no ripe fruit. Finish gone very quickly. Decanted aggressively for 2 hours and it did open up with nice richness with nose of black & red fruit with fresh fennel turning to anise over the hours, ripe blackberries, dark currants with a touch of tar on the palate followed by a richer, juicier softer tannin medium length finish. Don't do as I did and take a chance now......needs the 2-3+ years and will be even more delicious.
