Vineyard Notes
Frog Tree Vineyard, a small, three-acre plot, is located in Coombsville. The Coombsville appellation is a crescent-shaped section of the foothills of the Vaca Range, where alluvial soils cover volcanic ash from Mt. George with cobblestone-strewn layers of rich, gravelly loam. 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.
Production Notes
This is a bold and powerful Cabernet. Ripe tannins are extracted to create a well-structured and age-worthy wine. 22 months of barrel aging smooth out the tannins while maintaining their power.
Tasting Notes
This wine’s darker-than-night appearance hints at the power within. Intriguing notes of plum, cassis, figs, roasted coffee beans, and toasted almonds lead into 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.
Food Pairing Notes
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.
