Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
A super attractive, mid-weight wine, the estate's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up a classic expression of Rutherford. Sweet red cherry, iron, smoke and chocolate are all pushed forward, followed by a kick of energy that punctuates the finish. Exuberant and racy, with fabulous intensity, the 2013 is showing beautifully today. Despite its openness today, the 2013 has the pedigree to drink well for many years.
From the heart of the Rutherford Bench, this estate-grown wine is a classic version of restraint and elegance, structured in dusty tannin with bursts of cedar, tomato leaf and cassis. Cabernet Franc makes up 8% of the blend, with 3% Merlot. This will benefit from time in the cellar; drink 2020-2023.
