Round Pond Estate generously reached into their cellar to offer a 3.0L bottle of their 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon to Wine for Haiti. Retail value is $315.00.
From Round Pond- This singular wine is a rich and elegant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah. Highlighted by complex aromas of wild berry, cinnamon, cloves and pepper, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon displays typical Rutherford structure with boysenberry syrup, blueberry and plum accents. Balanced, with lively acidity, and suedy tannins, this wine emphasizes cool fermentation, early pressing and lees stirring adding to depth on the palate. Aged for 22 months in Tronçais and Allier tight grain new French oak, this wine will cellar beautifully up to 15 years. Bottle is contained in 3 liters and is packaged in a beautiful, fire-etched Round Pond wood box.
Round Pond Estates will ship to AK, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, HI, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, LA, ME, MI, MN, MO, NC, ND, NE, NH, NM, NY, OH, OR, SC, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA, WI, WV, and WY.

[How it works- Each auction lot will get its own post. As soon as it gets its own post, the auction is live. Once a bit of time has passed, and people really know about Wine for Haiti, lots will go live AND HOT. Once hot, each lot is on a 24-hour cycle, ending at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time. If a lot goes a full 24 hours, from 10:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., without a new bid, the last bid in the comments wins. If we get into a bidding war, with the same people going back and forth, one day at a time, we will post something in the comments of that Auction Lot and schedule a time to bid to the death, at a time mutually agreeable to everybody involved.]
