Winemaker Notes

A wine with all the hallmarks of the legendary Cabernets of Rutherford: deep, cassis currant aromas, the classic notes of Rutherford Dust, earthen flavors of cedar and black olive and a velvety, plush mouthfeel.

91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

V93

Vinous

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown from Frog's Leap is dark, bold and luscious, with generous dark cherry, plum spice, leather. Forward and supple, the 2016 will drink well right out of the gate, and yet it also has enough freshness to age nicely for a number of years. In 2016, the Cabernet has gorgeous depth to play off a classic, mid-weight sense of structure. This is a positively joyous Cabernet Sauvignon from Frog's Leap.

COMMENTARY: Owner/winemaker John Williams was always looking to produce the most accurate and pure Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. When the winery purchased the Rossi Vineyard in 2007, the picture became complete. The 2016 Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon is beautiful, refined, and unmistakable. TASTING NOTES: This wine deftly combines fruit and terroir. Its aromas and flavors of red and black fruit, dust and warm spices should pair it famously with grilled lamb chops accented with fresh mint leaves. (Tasted: January 18, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
