Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Frog's Leap Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

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 harvest of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes at our Rossi and Chavez-Leeds vineyards began in mid-September. We brought in the lion’s share in the weeks that followed, with the fruit showing remarkable freshness and depth. Of course, 2018 will be remembered for the multiple wildfires that broke out on October 8th. While neither the winery nor any of our vineyards were in immediate danger, the fires upended the lives of every employee at Frog’s Leap, adding uncertainty to an already hectic time of year.

In the end, we are able to ensure that the fires did not compromise the quality of our wines. This 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon shows the blackcurrant fruit, dense palate, and dusty aromas that are classic to a Rutherford Cabernet. But this vintage will always contain something extra for us: a reminder of the deep roots of our vines, and the resiliency of our community here at Frog’s Leap.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Published November 4, 2021 - Rated 92:
Plums, earth, dried herbs, lavender and bark on the nose. Full body with chewy tannins. Firm and tight. Quite angular. Fresh and bright. Needs time to soften. Better after 2023.
