This is the first vintage of Frog's Leap Rutherford Cab that comes entirely from estate-grown fruit. A blend of 92% Cab and 8% Cab Franc from the near-perfect 2013 vintage.
93 Points Antonio Galloni: "A super attractive, mid-weight wine, the estate’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up a classic expression of Rutherford. Sweet red cherry, iron, smoke and chocolate are all pushed forward, followed by a kick of energy that punctuates the finish. Exuberant and racy, with fabulous intensity, the 2013 is showing beautifully today and has the pedigree to drink well for many years”.
This Cabernet Sauvignon has all the hallmarks of the legendary Cabernets of Rutherford: the deep, cassis-currant aromas, the classic notes of 'Rutherford Dust,' and the earthen flavors of cedar and black olive. The mouthfeel is plush across the palate with velvety tannins, yet balanced by bright acidity and firm structure that hints at promising years to come. Pair it with rack of lamb, N.Y. Strip, or just another glass! This wine is destined to give decades of drinking pleasure."
