Winery Tasting Notes: Inviting and approachable, this wine’s bouquet prepares the palate with aromas of cherry jubilee, cocoa-dusted red berries, and subtle hints of spice. Red fruit driven, the supple entry teases with bright notes of fresh cherry and licorice immediately lead into darker, fleshier notes. This full-bodied Cabernet shows a beautiful balance of fruit, acid, spice, and tannin. Earthy notes of forest floor, dark chocolate, and sage linger for a full, yet remarkably soft finish.

“Round Pond Estate’s Kith & Kin bottling is striking for its balance and wide availability. Plus, Napa Cabernet this good often costs a lot more.”
Pairings: Beef cheeks with onion marmalade, Spare ribs with chocolate-barbeque sauce, Prune bread pudding
Fun Facts: Kith & Kin, Old English for “Friends & Family”, is a Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from all corners of the Napa Valley but with its heart rooted in Rutherford. This wine is meant to be approachable in its youth, with balanced tannins and a fruit forward character. The vast majority of fruit comes from our estate, supplemented by a limited amount from Napa Valley growers.
