Elegant and refined, the Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of rich black fruit laced with hints of dried herbs. The wine’s deep connection to the soil is reflected in flavors of cassis, plum and black berries which are complemented by the essence of truffle, cedar and tobacco. Soft tannins and well integrated oak are balanced with a fine acidity to create a finish that will linger well after the last course has been cleared.
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.
