Frog's Leap Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2014, Napa Valley, California, USA
About this wine
On the nose are classic earthy Rutherford characters along with cassis and blackcurrant and a touch of spice. Elegant black cherry dominates the relatively youthful palate, with undercurrents of cedar, tobacco and olive. Firm yet fine tannins complete this excellent west coast Cabernet.
"Leafy green pepper aromas with nice blackcurrant notes in the background. Firm, chewy but entirely coherent on the palate. Quite mineral, understated and structured, with the potential to develop further. Drink 2016-2023. 91 points, Highly Recommended", in Feb 2016's Decanter Magazine California Cabernet 2012 Panel Tasting
