Frog's Leap Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$59.99

Frog's Leap Rutherford Cab comes entirely from estate-grown fruit. A blend of 92% Cab and 8% Cab Franc from the near-perfect 2015 vintage.  93 Points Antonio Galloni (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." This Cabernet Sauvignon has all the hallmarks of the legendary Cabernets of Rutherford: the deep, cassis-currant aromas, the classic notes of 'Rutherford Dust,' and the earthen flavors of cedar and black olive. The mouthfeel is plush across the palate with velvety tannins, yet balanced by bright acidity and firm structure that hints at promising years to come. Pair it with rack of lamb, N.Y. Strip, or just another glass! This wine is destined to give decades of drinking pleasure."

Silky blackberry, black cherry, pomegranate and red plum. Smoke, leather, autumn leaves. Modest in fruit profile but precise and elegant in expression. 3 hours in air (bc make the best of what you’ve got right?) made a whole tier of difference in depth.

Wow, what a great surprise. I remember getting a, one bottle, of this to fill a mixed case as an afterthought because it was inexpensive. I wish I’d have got a whole case.

About as perfect a Cabernet Sauvignon as you could find. Rich, deep dark fruit, a long finish. Truly exceptional.

Dark red fruits. Hints of tomato leaf, dusty leather and fresh herbs. Nice texture. Hint of bacon smoke. A bit sharp but it is a baby. Let this one sleep a bit. Good potential.
