Tasting notes from the Fort Worth Food & Wine Festival...
This, along with the Trefethen Dragon's Tooth, were the winners of the night for me. Dark fruits but in no way overbearing. Lengthy and enjoyable finish.

Round Pond Estate I have to say, for what you pay it's a great investment. Had this in a restaurant so I didn't get to decant much at all, but my analysis is as follows:

Great bouquet of sweet tobacco, anise, nutmeg/brown baking spices, and cedar. The pallet was very flavorful, with ripe cherries and black currant, vanilla bean, cracked pepper, and a sweet fine grained tannin, ending in a lingering, but slightly hot finish, flaring the nostrils with ethanol. Paired wonderfully with a nice flat iron steak!

Ripe and polished. I've been very pleased with this bottling the couple vintages I've had it. Round Pond is a real up-and-comer in Napa.

Young and showing oak (as expected at this age). Very pretty the second day. This is going to be really good with age
