Winemaker Notes

The depth of the ripe plum aromas is astounding, the weight on the palate perfect and the flavors go on and on. Frog's Leap was surprised somewhat in their blending trials when they consistently preferred this wine with a small portion of Cabernet sauvignon and a dollop of Cabernet franc blended in. The added structure promises complete integrity for aging well into the future. If you are opening it in its first five years of life, it is recommended to decant an hour or more and serving it with a dish slightly sweeter in its preparation.

Try pairing with Duck a l'Orange.

The 2013 Frog's Leap Merlot is not your Campbell's soup production-line, predictable example of this grape variety. While most folks in the wine world visualize Merlot as soft, plump, and user-friendly, proprietor John Williams sees it differently and gives the grape its due respect. This wine exhibits great density and range of flavors—red fruit, soft dust, rich earth—and finishes with formidable firmness. Drinks nicely now and will develop further with bottle age.

Wine Enthusiast
There's a healthy 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc in this wine, which is classically structured in red fruit, soft oak and peppery spice. Its cedar notes speak to the Cab within, while the overall texture and breadth of the wine is lengthy, food-ready and impressive.

Frog's Leap John & Rory Williams Winery Image

Frog's Leap is a family-owned winery dedicated to sustainable principles and committed to producing wines with balance, restraint and respect for terroir. Originally founded by the Williams Family in 1981 on a spot along Mill Creek known as the Frog Farm, today Frog's Leap makes its home amongst 200 acres of vineyards in Rutherford at the historic ‘Red Barn’. This noted ‘ghost winery’ was built in 1884 as the Adamson Winery and renovated in 1994 as Frog's Leap's permanent home. A handsome bi-level barrel chai completes the state-of-the-art winemaking facility and guests are received in the warm and welcoming LEED-certified hospitality center.

Now in its fourth decade of production, Winemakers John Williams, Paula Moschetti and Rory Williams hand-craft an annual production of 65,000 cases comprised of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Merlot, and an estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Using the best of Napa Valley's organically grown, dry- farmed grapes and the most traditional winemaking techniques, Frog's Leap strives to produce wines that deeply reflect the soils and climate from which they emanate.

First certified by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) in 1988 Frog's Leap has been a leader in the industry for over two decades. The winery relies on techniques such as crop rotation, green manure, compost and biological pest control to maintain soil productivity and control pests on a farm. Organic farming excludes the use of manufactured fertilizers and pesticides, plant growth regulators and genetically modified organisms. Organic farming involves mechanical weed control (via cultivating or hoeing) rather than herbicidal weed control.

Frog's Leap presents a relaxed approach to enjoying wine. An easy hospitality and warm sense of humor is juxtaposed with a more serious sensibility when making wine. The wines produced range from Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay to Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc. We have quite the line up to offer so we hope you’ll try one of these delicious wines that harmoniously combine quality, sustainability and value.
