(2010 Vintage) 93% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Cabernet Franc 1% Merlot The classic Rutherford characters of earth and dust are present in this Frogs' Leap Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of cassis and currant combine with a mineral tone and a touch of warm spices. Across the palate rich black cherry flavors are enhanced with notes of pomegranate, spice, cedar and green olive. Elegant and soft, this wine's plush texture is balanced by firm yet yielding tannins and a bright acidity.
great, loved it. very dry. Deep, intense black fruit, bright acidity and long gorgeous flavors are a hallmark of this long growing season and a reason to celebrate the intense effort and sacrifice it took to get there. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic. Made to accompany that herb-crusted standing rib roast, it surely will not disappoint. Throw a few bottles in the cellar... they will almost certainly reward the effort over the next 20–30 years. Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 1% Merlot
