Currents, minerality and warm baking spices. Rutherford, CA | 13.8% ABV
Sometimes wine in California is TOO big and TOO alcoholic, losing quality for quantity, and overly fruit-forward for the region. Frog's Leap is a winery to respect, if for any reason, because they stayed true to their philosophy of making balanced, nuanced wine down to the last pour. Definitely a conversation piece and a step up for novices.
