Winemaker Notes

The classic Rutherford characters of earth and dust are present in this 2008 Frogs' Leap Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of cassis and currant combine with a mineral tone and a touch of warm spices. Across the palate rich black cherry flavors are enhanced with notes of pomegranate, spice, cedar and green olive. Elegant and soft, this wine's plush texture is balanced by firm yet yielding tannins and a bright acidity.

Critical Acclaim

Wine & Spirits

John Williams consistently grows one of the most compelling Cabernets on the Napa Valley floor--without ever irrigating his organically farmed vines. His 2008 is elegant and refined, a Cabernet that's not afraid to show some varietal notes of tobacco and herb, along with black cherry and cranberry flavors. It's complex and youthfully tannic, all woven into a seamless finish.

A very good Cabernet, dry balanced and complex. But it's also very tannic, and is not a wine you want to drink anytime soon. With a solid core of blackberries, herbs and cocoa, it should come into its own after 2014 or so.
