Wines with each
 
Frogs Leap has been organically farming grapes since 1988, well ahead of the movement, seemingly made famous for their iconic Sauvignon Blanc in the mid-1990s the winery continues to treat the soil for what it is, life-giving. 

Reception
2018 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley: Made entirely from dry-farmed and certified organically grown grapes from our estate vineyards in Rutherford. Our Sauvignon blanc is then vinified in a way that allows the wine to retain the purity and distinctiveness of this noble variety.

Served with gold and red beets, apple chips, pickled grapes, Tuscan kale, beet blush, Marcona almonds + roasted apple-herb sherry vinaigrette

First Course
2016 Chardonnay, Napa Valley: A unique combination of barrel fermentation followed by extended “sur lie” aging in concrete vats. Balance and restraint in a varietal not always associated with these traits.

Served with poached lobster, acquerello rice, Wisconsin corn, sweet peas, Bufala mozzarella + white truffles

Second Course
2016 Merlot, Napa Valley: Grown in cool clay soils, this wine shows why some of the rarest and most expensive wines in the world start with Merlot. Bright plummy and red berry flavors lead the way but it is the texture of the wine that will stay with you. 

Served with a cassoulet of fried veal cheeks, duck bockwurst, duck chicharones, butternut squash + fall watercress

Third Course
2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley: Classically structured Cabernet that is the result of a decades-long pursuit to obtain vineyards on the Rutherford Bench. Deep, black fruit, mocha and distinctly “dusty” aromas, brilliant structure, great acid and lush flavors without any hint of flabbiness.

Served with Australian A-8 Wagyu beef, Brussel sprouts, applewood smoked bacon, parsnip puree, sorrel pesto + merlot caviar

Fourth Course
2018 La Grenouille Rougante’ Pink, Mendocino: Delicate floral aromas and fresh fruit flavors come together in this classic Provençal style rose. Lifted by bright, natural acid and low alcohol the wine is lively, crisp and refreshing, the perfect companion to a warm, sunny day.

Served with strawberry carpaccio, white chocolate rose cremeaux, bruleed brie, basil ganache, artisan dark chocolate sauce and a white balsamic gastrique
