Item Description

This is a classically structured Cabernet that is the result of a decades-long pursuit to obtain vineyards on the Rutherford Bench. The 2015 certainly fills all of the requirements of succeeding in the lineage of the Estate Grown Cabernets but it does it with a little twist.
The 2015 is a remarkable wine: rich, deep mocha aromas, superb balance, with very long and deep flavors. Is the Merlot contributing? We think yes. Please wait 10 years to open and even then give it an hour in the decanter. Can’t wait? Grill a well-aged N.Y. strip and serve simply with a peppery arugula salad.

Blend: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc

Frog's Leap VineyardsMy grandfather always said that you could pretty much tell how good a farmer was by how straight his fences were. Perhaps the Napa Valley equivalent would be that you can predict the quality of a winery's product by the health of their vines. After four decades of making wine in the Napa Valley, I am proud to say that Frog's Leap grows almost all of our own grapes. And a visit to the winery always starts in our beautiful vineyards.

For more than 25 years we've been well known for our advancement of the principles of organic grape growing, dry farming and many aspects of biodynamics. It would be understandable for one to attribute our actions to a deeply held political agenda or, quite the opposite, to a thinly veiled marketing plan. While both are fair assumptions, neither are true. In point of fact, it has always been wine quality that drives our farming choices.
