Round Pond Kith & Kin Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
Wine EnthusiastOaky vanilla, dried herb and baked plum combine well in this value-minded red wine, which is brawny in tannin. The intensity continues on the palate in a note of toasted char and cedar.
Wine SpectatorA light vanilla frame works with a core of creamy cassis and blueberry fruit flavors up front, giving way to a vanilla note on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 17,432 cases made.
Jeb DunnuckA blend of 81% Cabernet, 16% Petit Verdot, and 3% Merlot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Kith & Kin is a spicy, medium-bodied, straightforward effort that has plenty of cherry and currant fruits, good overall balance, and ample upfront charm. It shows the more linear style of the vintage and should be drunk over the coming 5-7 years.
