Product Notes: Once again, the Frog's Leap Cabernet highlights a soft texture, ripe fruit and a deep connection to the vineyard- and delivers it all with an alcohol level below 14%. Aromas of currant and blackberry combine with a warm spice tone right out of the glass. Flavors of dried black fruits pick up on the palate with added, subtle touches of cedar, leather and a hint of black olive. The wine's resolved tannins and integrated oak allow for a mouth-feel that is soft yet lean with a long finish that is carried by the bright, natural acid of the fruit.
