In the end, we are able to ensure that the fires did not compromise the quality of our wines. This 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon shows the blackcurrant fruit, dense palate, and dusty aromas that are classic to a Rutherford Cabernet. But this vintage will always contain something extra for us: a reminder of the deep roots of our vines, and the resiliency of our community here at Frog’s Leap.
The harvest of the Cabernet sauvignon grapes at our Rossi and Chavez-Leeds vineyards began in mid-September. We brought in the lion’s share in the weeks that followed, with the fruit showing remarkable freshness and depth. Of course, 2017 will be remembered for the multiple wildfires that broke out on October 8th. While neither the winery nor any of our vineyards were in immediate danger, the fires upended the lives of every employee at Frog’s Leap, adding uncertainty to an already hectic time of year.
