Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruits, herbs and floral spice. On the palate flavors of ripe black cherry, raspberry and cassis with espresso, cinnamon and earthy spice notes. Well balanced, lively acidity, fine tannins, long ending with fruit, cacao and tobacco spice! Nice!

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.
