Cool, soil-driven aromas and flavors of blue fruits, licorice and underbrush struck me as quite claret-like. At once glyceral and fresh, offering lovely depth and sweetness in the middle, with bright tannins giving the wine more obvious focus than the 2009 release. Shows a distinct ferrous quality. Finishes with building ripe tannins. This should age very well. In comparison to the 2009s, the estate's 2010 cabernets are more acid- than tannin-driven, according to winemaker Brown.
One of my favorites!

I bought this wine on a "whim" having grown up in the South not far Thomas Rivers Brown's home town. This wine has become one of my favorites... The dense black fruit flavors, the well-balanced tannin and velvet-like texture have made me a huge fan of Round Pond Estate. Since purchasing this wine it became available at Costco and I have added to my collection.

Young, but I'm certain this cab will improve with time in the cellar
