Frog's Leap Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Elegant and refined, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of rich black fruit laced with hints of dried herbs. The wine's deep connection
to the soil is reflected in flavors of cassis, plum and black berries which are complemented by the essence of truffle, cedar and tobacco. Soft tannins and well integrated oak are balanced with a fine acidity to create a finish that will linger well after the last course has been cleared.
"John Williams at Frog's
Leap is not out to make the ripest cabernet in the valley. He’s a grower, and it
appears that he tuned his organically farmed vines precisely to the long, moderate 2007
season, producing a wine that stretches from the roots to the leaves and reaches toward cool,
pure, tightly balanced fruit. It’s an elegant cabernet, the fruit transparent enough to show
the character of Rutherford through the lens of woodland strawberries and red and black
currants. Delicious on release, this gets better with air, as it will in bottle. A wine to cellar for
ten years and enjoy along the way with lamb."
Wine & Spirits
"Good Cabernet, dry and complex, showing classic Napa character. The tannin structure is near perfect, while the flavors are ripe and juicy in blackberries, cherries, currants and cedar. Polished now and through 2013."
Begins with big ripe blackberry and raspberry jam, finish is smooth with clean tannin and subtle cedar smoke. Very approachable and addictive. This bottle will go fast.
Opens with loads of ripe red fruit aromas with layers of blackerry, herbs and cedar. I decanted the wine and it took almost an hour to open up. Nice balance with a long supple finish.
Full of flavor with out any after taste. One of the easiest drinking wines I've had in some time.
This Cab was very good... but, I was expecting a bit more. Amazing how you can get spoiled with so many great tasting bottles.
Had this wine with Christmas dinner. Roasted buffalo in a red sauce. The wine was great! everyone was please with the quality of this wine. The tannins are apparent throughout the pallet. full of black fruit and cherry without the mask of oak. If you are looking for the over the top Napa Cabernet, this is not it. However this is a great wine, and I look forward to the two bottles left.
Nice cabernet, but I've had lots of others I would pick first over this wine. Price is a little high. Maybe age in the cellar will help.
Solid wine but I expected more body, purchased a St. Clement 2006 Oroppas Cabernet with this bottle and my guests and I thought it was superior
This was ok but not worth the price at all.
Light & Fruity
really disappointed by this one. would have been a nice $10 bottle of california cabernet.
Just a so so Cab. Some plum fruit on the nose, weak mid-palate and short finish. OK weekday wine but much better stuff out there for this price.

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
