    3 reviews for Frog’s Leap Frog’s Leap Rutherford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

    1. VIN

      The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is such a gorgeous wine. In 2017, the Frog’s Leap Cabernet has a bit more depth and richness, as it often does in warmer years. Cedar, tobacco, mint and sweet red cherry are all pushed forward in a succulent Cabernet with tons of character that still retains its super-classic, mid-weight feel. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s aromatic nuance and silkiness. The Frog’s Leap Cabernet remains an under the radar gem in today’s Napa Valley.

    2. WAS

      The unusual heat spikes throughout the summer of 2017 challenged the dry-farmed vines at Frog’s Leap, but they came through it with fruit that tastes light and bright. There’s some dimpled ripeness to its red-cherry flavors, and a little alcohol warmth in the end, but the overall impression is rich and sleek, spicy and bold.

    3. WIL

      Frog’s Leap has been a longtime champion of producing wines of excellent balance. In a world where powerful wines often gain the most adulation, this winery has never ceased making crisp wines with lower alcohols, softer tannins, and food-friendly balance. The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine lets the fruit from the vines speak, and that it does in volumes. Enjoy its ripe fruit and energetic textures on the palate with a subtlety-seasoned Porchetta.
