Frolicking Frog Winery, owned by Stuart and Maria Goldman, www.frolickingfrogwine.com is a very small producer that makes very approachable and affordable quality wines. Most of the wines I tasted there were mild and easy to drinking. The Cabernet Sauvignon and the Sauvignon Blanc were my favorites.
2004 Cabernet Sauvignon has a woody nose, from newer oak barrels. The tastes are plum and black cherry, with good body, and dark chocolate under tones. It would pair well with fattier cuts of meats.
2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark garnet in color. The deep core pales to clear rim. There is a black cherry nose with mild tannens. It has good balance and is a soft and juicy Cabernet.
2007 Sauvignon Blanc has a sweet honey nose with tropical fruit and apricot. To the taste there are ripe pineapples.
The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation and is also not spicy or tart, but full of luscious tropical fruit flavors.
Not a typical Sauvignon Blanc with tart green apple flavors but, never the less a very nice wine.
All of the Frolicking Frog Winery wines are simple, pleasant and easy drinking. I can heartily recommend them all.
