"Typically when speaking of Cabernet, and especially Cabernet from Rutherford, we speak of the black fruit flavors of blackberry, cassis, and black currants. With our 2009 release, however, we find a lot of our descriptors heading the direction of red fruits - maybe even purple fruits - ripe plums, elderberries and ruby red cherries all with very supple tannins and lovely acidity." ~ Winery notes

My grandfather always said that you could pretty much tell how good a farmer was by how straight his fences were. Perhaps the Napa Valley equivalent would be that you can predict the quality of a winery's product by the health of their vines. After four decades of making wine in the Napa Valley, I am proud to say that Frog's Leap grows almost all of our own grapes. And a visit to the winery always starts in our beautiful vineyards.

For more than 25 years we've been well known for our advancement of the principles of organic grape growing, dry farming and many aspects of biodynamics. It would be understandable for one to attribute our actions to a deeply held political agenda or, quite the opposite, to a thinly veiled marketing plan. While both are fair assumptions, neither are true. In point of fact, it has always been wine quality that drives our farming choices.
