A sample of the wines that will be open for tasting on the 30th

Frog’s Leap Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

"Frog's Leap winemaker, John Williams, was in the cellar when the winning red wine at the Judgement of Paris was made - Stags Leap Cabernet. Frog's Leap has its own following these days and is fairly priced. Still youthful but drinking beautifully, this has bright plum and blackcurrant fruits on the nose, chocolate, black olive  and darker fruit flavours on the palate and a long finish." Leslie Williams, Irish Examiner, March 2021

Failla Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2019

With its spine of sappy brightness and crystalline salinity, this wine displays all the dense, bright and savoury appeal of the Sonoma coast. At once textural and filigreed, this is a laser-focused expression showing citrus, coastal bay and textural depth to carry the mid-palate to a refreshing finish. “Failla  is a reference point winery for the Sonoma Coast. This is as good as it gets.” Robert Parker.
