The Oddbins Take

If you want a proper pork pie, you get it from Melton Mowbray. If you want a handmade alpaca-wool scarf, you get it from Peru. If you want a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, you go the Médoc in Bordeaux, Coonawarra in Australia or Rutherford Bench in the Napa Valley. OK there are many other places too, but these names stand as benchmarks of quality. Frog’s Leap’s founder John Williams wanted a piece of the Rutherford pie and, following a decade-long pursuit, by Jove he got it. Now that he has it, he is seriously making the most out of it. Topped up with Cabernet Franc and Merlot, this Cabernet Sauvignon has the gorgeous ‘Rutherford Rust’ minerality, earthy warmth and intensity that make this region’s wines so desirable.
