Description  more details

Frog's Leap Napa Cabernet. Intense and concentrated, with a rich core of blackberry, wild berry and currant flavors that are sharply focused, deep and complex, finishing with a firm core of chewy tannins. Best through 2020.
It is cliche perhaps that the very best wineries show their colors in a difficult vintage. Frog's Leap is very proud to offer its Cabernet Sauvignon as Exhibit 1 in that discussion. Classically proportioned, deeply fragrant, beautifully balanced, this wine is only just now beginning to show its promise. Aromatics of black currant and cigar box are followed by rich flavors of plum and green tea. The perfect partner to complement your Cote de Boeuf, in the short term, but will delightfully accompany your Stilton for many years to come.

77% Cabernet sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot

John Williams consistently produces one of the freshest Merlots in Napa Valley, this vintage light and pretty with supple plum and red currant flavors. It lacks the confected fruit of so many wines that bear the varietal name, hewing instead to clean lines and a long, mouthwatering finish. Pour it with roast duck.

Frogs Leap stands tall in the hart of Rutherford, at home in its historically noted ghost winery Red Barn. This grand and welcoming building was built in 1884 as the Adamson Winery and renovated in 1994 as Frogs Leap's permanent home. Originally, founded on a spot along Mill Creek known as the Frog Farm, Frogs Leap now makes its home in the heart of Rutherford in the historic Red Barn. Our family-owned winery has been farming responsibly and producing wines since 1981. Presented with a warm sense of humor.
