Frogs Leap Napa Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Sauvignon Blanc greets you with aromas of lemongrass, wet stone and delicate floral notes. This wine's deep connection to its Rutherford roots is revealed through the subtle flavors of minerality and slate that peer through the citrus and zest tones. Crisp and taut on the palate, this wine's bright acid makes it bracing and refreshing - a wine of engaging distinctiveness, much like the appellation from which it originates.

I stayed in for a change – what’s up with that? It seems I never stay in these days. I buy food, it goes bad, I throw it out, I buy more food, it goes bad and I throw it out and I feel guilty about it, but it doesn’t stop me going out… all the time! I needed a night in. I actually needed about a month’s worth of nights in, but that’s another story altogether. Not sure what to do with myself on a night in so I looked at my On Demand and decided to catch up with some of my “Men of USA” and open a bottle of Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc and a can of Chicken Noodle Soup. I know so bad right? I had no other food in my house worthy of cooking so soup it had to be. The Frog’s Leap Sauv is a soft honeydew melon in color. On the nose it is crisp, clean and sharp with an immediate aroma of grapefruit. The mineral notes are light on the palate and it does have a hint of a steely flavor. As you continue to drink the wine it becomes well-balanced with flavors of peach, citrus and melon. It is quite a spiky, acidic wine with a slightly creamy, long finish. This is a delicious Summer wine, which goes perfectly with the “Men of USA.” Not so much with the can of Chicken Noodle Soup!

This is a stellar Sauvignon Blanc. Lots of Lychee on the nose with subtle peach note. Crisp, clean flavors of bright citrus, lychee and peach. Well balanced, nice finish. Went well with a creamy artichoke dip. Would be perfect with a grilled chicken salad. Loved this wine!

Aromas of citrus, stone fruit, white flowers and lean mineral flavors round out this medium weight wine. You'll taste a touch a grassiness mixed with taut, crisp flavors... refreshing. Try it with fish and chips.

Tight scents of green pepper and freshly cut grass meld with this sauvignon's earthiness. Chill it for roast Cornish game hens.

Firmly stated scents of ripe apple and pear fill up the body of this wine, while a clean cut of acidity slices through the ripeness. The lashings of fruit have enough structure to embolden the wine with food - a robust match for a chicken roasted with sage, or a veal chop encrusted with herbs.

Grabs your interest for its intense varietal character and overall balance and harmony. Zesty lemondrop, gooseberry, fig and vanilla flavors dominate, leading to a dry finish that's rich in acids. Has the weight of a Chardonnay.

Tight, with very good concentration to the grapefruit, grass and green apple flavors. Drink now through 2006.

A tight, flinty, steely style, with firm citrus, fig, passion fruit and pear shadings that are sharply focused. Drink now through 2004.

With no oak, this wine's inherent fruit stars, showing citrus, melons and peaches. With crisp acidity, it's clean, brisk and entirely dry, despite relatively low alcohol. But it's strong in those perfumed pyrazines that turn some people off.
