Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2006
The restrained winemaking technique - marked especially by the rejection of new oak barrels - complements the varied aromas and flavors of this wine, which are distinctly Rutherford. By toning down the oak influence, the Rutherford embraces its terroir with vibrant aromas of damp earth and dried fruit. This connection to the “dust” continues with flavors of cassis, currant, and black olive. Dark cherry and mocha overlay hints of spice and pepper. Elegant and balanced with a plush mouthfeel (like running your hand against the grain of velvet), this wine offers quiet beauty in its long finish highlighted by intensity and fine-grained tannins.
Vineyards farmed responsibly. Serious wine presented with a warm sense of humor. This is Frog`s Leap. Bring a bottle to your table. Stash a few in your Cellar. Lift a glass with friends. Drink it. We`ll make more.
