A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 4% Merlot.
Crafted in the most traditional and natural ways, the 2005 Frog's Leap Cabernet
Sauvignon delivers a soft texture, ripe fruit and a deep connection to its soils
— all with an alcohol level below 14%. Aromas of currant and blackberry
combine with a warm spice tone right out of the glass. Flavors of dried black
fruits pick up on the palate with added, subtle touches of cedar, leather and a
hint of black olive. The wine's resolved tannins and integrated oak allow for a
mouth-feel that is soft yet lean with a long finish that is carried by the bright,
natural acid of the fruit.
"A gorgeous Cab,
lush and soft and delicious. Shows a New World, cult
winemaking sensibility, with superripe fruit and melted tannins
framing blackberry and cherry pie, cassis, dark chocolate, anise and
cedar flavors. Should age for the next ten years."
