Frog's Leap Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Winemaker's Notes:

The beautiful aromatics of the 2017 Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc brings great excitement to the wine. Peach blossom and white flower give way to a very light slatey aroma that is a perfect introduction to the crisp minerally flavors. Thiswine spent a bit more time on its fermentation lees than is usual and there is significant evidence for this in the depth of its flavors. -Winery Website

Pale, almost translucent in color. Grassy, crisp aromas. Grass and apple palate. Good, although not great, SB.

The 2007 Frog's Leap Sauvignon Blanc opens with aromas of lemongrass, citrus blossoms and wet stone. The wine's deep connection to its Rutherford origin is revealed through the subtle flavors of minerality and stone. Crisp and taut on the palate, this Sauvignon Blanc's bright acid and low alcohol make it a wine of engaging and refreshing restraint.

About the Wine: With adequate rainfall early in the season but moderate and dry conditions throughout most of the flowering and ripening phases, the 2013 Sauvignon blanc seemed to exhibit a certain urgency to develop flavor and physiological ripeness as soon as possible. The result seems to be all the bright and balanced flavors found normally in a Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc, but with more weight and depth across the palate. We always think of food when we think of Sauvignon Blanc but particularly this year, I’m thinking I may just enjoy a glass all on its own! - Winery Alcohol: 12.4% TA: 7.0 g/L pH: 3.23

Light and clean in the nose, with attractive hints of nutmeg and other baking spices. It's certainly not dull, with its palate showcasing fresh grapefruit, nectarine and tangerine flavors. A crisp, refreshing finish is the final act, making it

Staying true to its Rutherford roots, this Sauvignon Blanc exudes aromas of citrus peel, lemon zest and granite. These bright flavors are handsomely balanced by the wine's subtle minerality and its bracing acidity.

John Williams, Frog’s Leap’s owner, is one of Napa Valley’s wonderful characters. I’ve never seen him without a smile, he always has a quip or two, and he’s invested, Zen-like one can say, in farming sustainably. He also makes some mighty nice wines at his lovely, flower-festooned Rutherford winery.His 2005 Sauvignon Blanc – fermented entirely in stainless steel, thereby having it stay clear of any oak – reflects Williams’ personality. It’s not too showy – but boy, does it envelop one’s palate – nor is it austere. I wouldn’t go so far as to pronounce Williams a voluptuous personality, but the wine is devoid of any sort of edginess. Williams manages to achieve all this by allowing the fruit to stand on its merits. There’s some telltale sour berry (some would say gooseberry) aromas, which to my mind is a good thing. Most important, it is perfectly balanced. In other words, the experience you’ll have with this Sauvignon Blanc, served as it was to me with a seared mackerel with basil cream, will make you feel a sense of well-being; which is what Williams seems to impart.The fruit was picked from dry-farmed, organically grown vineyards. The mouth-cleansing acidity (a perfect foil to wash away the aforementioned basil cream) is high (3.15 pH), but as I alluded to, there’s nary any tartness. As Williams might say himself, the gestalt of the wine is decidedly Sauvignon and definitively Rutherford with its minerality and just this-side-of-sweet white peach. As Williams did write on his Web site, “There is no mistaking this wine for Chardonnay.”The listed alcohol – and we like this attribute – is 12.9 percent. The production was 21,000 cases.
