Just delicious. Perfumed, gracious and very refined. The understated side of Napa Valley Cabernet...🤪💥🤩

You’ll have to look far for a Napa Cab of this standard at the modest price of ye good ‘ol Frog’s Leap, which does not leave you wish for anything more. The ‘15 is showing a wonderfully ripe, dense and energetic fruit profile aligned with the well placed oak profile and trademark dusty graphite complexity. Round and ripe textured tannins with a nice grip is bringing the palate throughout a long, though not exceptional

Blackberry and red bell pepper notes for me! Needs some more time I think.

Overripe black cherry, licorice, potting soil, clove. Lengthy is an understatement, coating is thorough, even, smooth.

Black cherry, licorice. Dark fruit, drying tannins, sweet fruit and leathery finish. Some Rutherford dust thrown in.

Restraint, balance, approachability and value- all very hard to find from Rutherford AVA.

Blackberry, cherry cola, cassis, eucalyptus, licorice and oak. Great structure and quite tannic.

Not fair since I had tasted several old vintages a day prior. With age, a true gem. It’s a good cab now but gotta think a few years it’ll be bangin’.

Medium ruby in color, this time punches above its color. Vibrant aromas of wild berries, cassis and vanilla are mixed with savory herbs and saddle leather. The texture is soft, full and concentrated; big dark fruit and a tinge of that famed Rutherford dust linger on the silky finish.
