The addition of 9% cabernet franc and 4% merlot boost the natural varietal flavors of cabernet sauvignon in this traditionally crafted wine from Frog's Leap. Lower in alcohol than a lot of Napa Valley cabs, this wine is ripe with currant and blackberry aromas touched with warming spice evolve into black fruits on the palate, with the added flavors of cedar, leather and hints of black olive. Resolved tannins and integrated oak keep this wine soft and supple with bright acidity and a long finish.
|Believing that a grapevine should be grown in healthy soil that supports all the nutrient needs of the plant, Frog’s Leap has been farming organically since 1988. We also believe that most of the great and historic wines of the world have been made from non-irrigated grapevines, and to that end Frog’s Leap farms all of its vineyards without irrigation.
We adhere to the premise that the greatest wines are those that most truly reflect their soil, climate and circumstance (collectively referred to as “terroir”), and that it is the winemaker’s role to simply stand back and let the natural beauty of the grapes show through.
We don’t make great wine, we grow it.
