Frog's Leap Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
The Frog's Leap Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon is made from fruit that is organically grown in the renowned Rutherford wine region of the Napa Valley in California. The complex soil structure combined with extraordinary attention to detail from winemaker John Williams makes this a stand-out Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep, black fruit, mocha and distinctly “dusty” aromas, brilliant structure, great acid and lush flavours without any hint of flabbiness, this wine is set to be paired with any classic combination associated with Cabernet. 2017 will be remembered for the multiple wildfires that broke out on October 8th. While neither the winery nor any of the vineyards were in immediate danger, the fires upended the lives of every employee at Frog’s Leap, adding uncertainty to an already hectic time of year. In the end, the team were able to ensure that the fires did not compromise the quality of the wines. This 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon shows the blackcurrant fruit, dense palate, and dusty aromas that are classic to a Rutherford Cabernet. But this vintage will always contain something extra: a reminder of the deep roots of the vines, and the resiliency of the community at Frog’s Leap.
