Course Pairing / Description Wine
Hors D’oeuvres Pear and Brie with Almonds in Phyllo Crab and Lemon Ginger Rangoon
Carneros Chardonnay at its very best: pure, clean, fresh, restrained, drinkable.The description “Shale and Stone” on the 2018 label is reflective of nearly a decade of experimentation to arrive at a style that celebrates the deep minerality of its ancie nt fractured shale soils and preserves the freshness of the varietal with long sur lie aging in concrete. The result is this stunning 2018 Chardonnay: taut but generous, full yet bright on the palate. Flavorful but not obvious.

Soup Course Chicken and Pipian Rojo with Crispy Tortilla and Crema
Delightful aromas of summer-berry conserve combined with a touch of spice and fresh fruit flavors. The 2018 Zin is one for the ages and we have already put extra stocks of it into our deep cellar. Tremendous aromatic intensity, yes, but it is the cool, calm and polished flavors that are getting us excited. Fine young, but it is the aging potential of this wine that is truly special.
Frog's Leap Zinfandel 2018
Pasta Course Duck Confit Stuffed Ravioli with Roasted Artichoke Hearts, Sun Dried Tomatoes and Brown Sage Butter
Extravagant plum fruit aromas enriched by the lush flavors that Merlot is famous for. With beautiful deep plum and red fruit aromas, a silky structure and long perfectly balanced flavors, the 2017 Merlot paired beautifully with a confit of duck served with wild rice at a recent gathering of friends.

Beef Course Smoked and Roasted Strip Loin Medallions, Black Berry and Currant Sauce, Roasted Carrots and Crispy Brussels Sprout
Classically structured Cabernet that is the result of a decades-long pursuit to obtain vineyards on the Rutherford Bench. 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.
Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown 2017
Dessert Course Lemon Custard Napoleon and Brule Meyer Royals
Clean, fresh, minerally... a transparent view into the soils of Rutherford. The 2019 Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc is a very pretty wine. From its delicate, bright stone fruit and flint aromas to its crisp mineral flavors, it delights all the senses.
