Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc.

Frog's Leap Rutherford: our most honest attempt to capture all of the above in a single bottle — history, tradition and the ultimate expression of winemaking passion.

In 1996 we introduced our first offering of the Rutherford and the 2007 vintage stands proudly in that tradition as a wine of distinct purpose, origin and taste. In this wine the "Rutherford Dust" produces aromas of black berry and sweet tobacco. Flavors of currant and cherry meld with touches of cedar, vanilla and olive tapenade across the palate. The mouth-feel is plush and velvety, marked by fine-grain tannins and a long finish. This is a wine that enhances everything from the arrival of the first guest through the clearing of the cheese course.

Critical Acclaim

"Frog's Leap strove for elegance above power in this modulated, ageworthy wine. Tasted against bigger, riper Cabs, it's almost lean, with herb-infused red cherry, violet and mineral flavors, wrapped into complex tannins. The alcohol is a refreshingly low 13.6%. This is a connoisseur’s wine, and it should develop for 10–15 years in a proper cellar."

Learn About Napa Valley

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,...
