Intriguing notes of plum, cassis, figs, roasted coffee beans, and toasted almonds.
Deep layers of dark fruit, ripe cherry, cocoa, clove, and vanilla. This intense, well-balanced, elegant wine is approachable now, but will continue to develop beautifully with age.
Frog Tree Vineyard, a small, three-acre plot, is located in Coombsville. The Coombsville appellation is a crescent-shaped section of the foot- hills of the Vaca Range, where alluvial soils cover volcanic ash from Mt. George with cobblestone-strewn layers of rich, gravelly loams. This very temperate micro-climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly and steadily. Coombsville wines can often be recognized by their soft but significant tannins, which provide excellent structure.
This is a bold and powerful Cabernet. We extract ripe tannins to create a well-structured and age-worthy wine. Twenty-two months of barrel aging smooth out the tannins while maintaining their power.
This wine’s darker-than-night appearance hints at the power within.
The supple tannins of this wine call for a hearty meal. Keep it classy with a beef stew so tender you can eat it with a spoon, or slow-cook a brisket rubbed with coffee and spices for a twist.
