Round Pond 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon

This was a surprising find.  We shared a bottle at a Cru Wine Bar inside Dallas Love Field airport, enjoying it over flatbreads and a cheese plate, sliders, and one salmon salad (mine).

Lighting inside made it hard to tell more about the color than it was, in fact, red.

However, it had a sharp, peppery nose, with hints of fruit.  This was borne out in the taste: tight, sharp, but opening up beautifully as it breathed.  I bet it would have been even better if we’d had more than 30 minutes to eat and make it to our terminal.

All in all, a nice, reasonably priced bottle.
