08 Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon ($50) ☺☺☺ 

Round Pond produces great structured wines and the 08 is a great example of this. It was opened about two hours before drinking and even when initially opened gave off some great aromas of black cherries and tobacco. After two hours had elapsed the wine grew in depth, more cherries, this tome some chocolate with a hint of warm spices. All in all a well rounded wine and will cellar well for quite a few more years yet.
