Leave it on the shelf. Over oaked. That's all there was to it unfortunately.

Sea breeze on the nose. Jammy fruits on the edge of a water stained butter knife. Tar and pickles on the finish. Not a sun drenched, hyper-sugary cab but still a wonderful experience brought to you by an organic, bio-dynamic farm.

smooth nose feel to this wine, very inviting with its blend of spices and fruit with a touch of acidity, leaving it feeling soft...i get a hint of sweetness on the front with a big black cherry/plum mid palate with silky tannic structure, with a slight spice and tremendous dryness on the finish...definitely sets itself apart in its price point...

Elegant, with tasty cedar, plum and wild berry flavors that turn earthy. Lacking the concentration for cellaring, it's ready now. Drink now through 2005.

The earthiness of this cabernet makes it seem a little old-fashioned, at least in the context of contemporary Napa Valley reds. It tastes of the earth the way a truffle does, humid and ripe, with a chocolate edge. The structure is intriguing, the fruit recessed, needing prime rib to coax it out.

John Williams consistently grows one of the most compelling cabernets on the Napa Valley floor - without ever irrigating his organically farmed vines. His 2008 is elegant and refined, a cabernet that's not afraid to show some varietal notes of tobacco and herb, along with black cherry and cranberry flavors. It's complex and youthfully tannic, all woven into a seamless finish. This should age with grace.

John Williams at Frog's Leap is not out to make the ripest cabernet in the valley. He's a grower, and it appears that he tuned his organically farmed vines precisely to the long, moderate 2007 season, producing a wine that stretches from the roots to the leaves and reaches toward cool, pure, tightly balanced fruit. It's an elegant cabernet, the fruit transparent enough to show the character of Rutherford through the lens of woodland strawberries and red and black currants. Delicious on release, this gets better with air, as it will in bottle. A wine to cellar for ten years and enjoy along the way with lamb.

Good Cabernet, dry and complex, showing classic Napa character. The tannin structure is near perfect, while the flavors are rip and juicy in blackberries, cherries, anise and cedar. Polished now and through 2013.

Although it's not on a par with Frog's Leap recent Cabernets, this '06 still is a nice glass of wine. It's dry and pretty tannic, with easy flavors of black currants and cedar. Might develop some bottle complexities over the next few years.

Shows a flavorful range of leather, black cherry, mineral, tobacco and tar notes, finishing with complex flavors and firm tannins. Drink now through 2004.
