The nearly picture perfect growing season of 2012 has imprinted its own character on the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc. Make no mistake, the slate and minerality typical of Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc is all there in spades and anchors the wine in its Rutherford roots. It’s just that there is something more. A hint of white peach or perhaps a bit of lychee that only is there in the best years. The result is a bit of expansion in the culinary possibilities. Yes, oysters, but this year why not Oyster Rockefeller? Despite this range, the wine remains deeply Frog’s Leap…bracing in acidity and always refreshing.
