Product description

Frog's Leap is a family-owned winery dedicated to sustainable principles and committed to producing wines with balance, restraint and respect for terroir. Originally founded by the Williams Family in 1981 on a spot along Mill Creek known as the Frog Farm, today Frog's Leap makes its home amongst 200 acres of vineyards in Rutherford at the historic ‘Red Barn’. This noted ‘ghost winery’ was built in 1884 as the Adamson Winery and renovated in 1994 as Frog's Leap's permanent home.

Using the best of Napa Valley's organically grown, dry-farmed grapes and the most traditional winemaking techniques, Frog's Leap strives to produce wines that deeply reflect the soils and climate from which they emanate. Frog's Leap produces some of Napa Valley's finest wines and, undoubtedly, has one of the wine world's best mottos: “Time's fun when you're having flies.”

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is classic in every way. Intense aromas of dark fruits, blackberry and cassis with lovely overtones of mocha and coffee bean. The flavours are subtle and nuanced while precisely balanced and deep. It is a wine for the cellar, of course, but will not disappoint in the shorter term paired with a nice rack of lamb or perhaps a Chateaubriand.

93 Points - Decanter    Beaming and pure, with aromas of fragrant red fruits, fresh flowers and a pleasant hint of ash. Elegant and bright on the palate, with a finely-drawn, precise acidity. Frog's Leap has always placed itself among producers that champion precision and elegance, and the 2018 is a particularly crystalline example of this.

92 Points - James Suckling    Plums, earth, dried herbs, lavender and bark on the nose. Full body with chewy tannins. Firm and tight. Quite angular. Fresh and bright. Needs time to soften. Better after 2023.
