Frog's Leap Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
A wine with all the hallmarks of the legendary Cabernets of Rutherford: deep, cassis-currant aromas, the classic notes of Rutherford Dust, earthen flavors of cedar and black olive and a velvety, plush mouthfeel.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown is a firm, classically built wine that is going to need a few years to come into its own. There is admirable depth as well as character. Red cherry/plum fruit, spice, tobacco and mocha lend quite a bit of aromatic nuance to this mid- weight, super-expressive Cabernet from Frog's Leap.
Perfumed nose of dried flowers, cassis, baked blueberries and chocolate orange with a touch of cinnamon. It’s full-bodied with fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Vibrant and zesty cabernet.
An outstanding wine, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown (there’s 7% Cabernet Franc) shines for its elegance and purity, as well as its classic Cabernet aromas and flavors of dark fruits, leather, and earthy, tobacco, herbal nuances.
