Wine Profile
Red fruit dominance, with pie cherries and woven spices throughout. The smooth as silk mid palate and approachability show off the deep soil terroir this wine is grown in. Beautiful seamless layers have this deep garnet beauty at the front of the line for an early drinking window

Palate Impressions
Silky and voluptuous with an impressive, suede-like tannic structure. The entry of ripe red fruit gives way to more savory notes of tobacco leaf, cedar, and clove spice. Intense richness on the finish is balanced with natural fruit acidity, leaving you with notes of black cherry and toasted almond. 

Myriad Context
The Round Pond Estate is situated in the heart of Rutherford, California, an appellation that has been famous for its world-class red wines for more than a century. The property spans 357 acres of planted vineyards, including the Red Barn Ranch, Hill’s block, Round Pond block and MacDonnell vineyards. Round Pond’s soils are extremely fertile due to deposits from alluvial outflows of the Conn Creek and Napa River that took place thousands of year ago. As a result, vine health is exceptional, and the vines grow vigorously in this unique appellation. Due to our vineyard partnership, Myriad is in the fortuitous position of being able to control all farming in our blocks and initiate harvest at ideal levels of ripeness. An essential element in creating wines that are elegantly voluptuous and crafted in a new world style.
