W&S 93 Vinous 93 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - "John Williams's dry-farmed cabernet vines produced a fresh, elegant wine in the first year of the drought. Its sweet red-currant fruit folds into the deep richness of savory tannins, feeling clean and complete, with a natural finesse. A classical Rutherford cabernet, this will age with grace."
According to Antonio Galloni - "The highlight in this range, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon captures the richness and exuberance of the vintage while keeping a classic, mid-weight feel. Sweet red cherry, plum, cedar, herb and smoke add shades of nuance in a hugely appealing Cabernet Sauvignon that will drink well for another two decades plus. This is the first Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon made from estate fruit."
Winemakers Notes - "This Cabernet Sauvignon has all the hallmarks of the legendary Cabernets of Rutherford: the deep, cassis-currant aromas, the classic notes of ‘Rutherford Dust,’ and the earthen flavors of cedar and black olive. The mouthfeel is plush across the palate with velvety tannins, yet balanced by bright acidy and firm structure that hints at promising years to come. Pair it with rack of lamb, N.Y. Strip, or just another glass! This wine is destined to give decades of drinking pleasure." 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc. 13.4% ABV.
