I know, I know. The HOLIDAY SEASON is upon us, and the myriad of parties, dinners and gifts are a strain on the budget, but THIS. THIS is why you break the rule of not buying anything for yourself during the holidays. THIS is what you want as a centerpiece in your cellar. THIS is a wine of spectacular pedigree, in an extremely hard-to-find-format, that will dazzle just the right guests for just the right occasion. You know you want today's Once Daily, the 2015 Frog's Leap Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford DOUBLE MAG!

Frog's Leap proprietor John Williams has an impressive winemaking resume dating back over 40 years, cutting his teeth at Stag's Leap and Spring Mountain Wineries before striking out on his own. His reverence for the old-school wines of Inglenook and Beaulieu Estates led him to Rutherford, where the well-drained, volcanic, gravelly soils provided the building blocks for their transcendent, terroir-driven Cabernet-based wines. His purchase of the Red Barn Vineyard in 1994, followed by a partnership with the owners of Chavez Leeds Vineyard and the acquisition of the historic Rossi Vineyard in Rutherford Bench, set the stage for Frog's Leap to follow in the footsteps of these iconic wineries. The 2015 Frog's Leap Estate Grown Cabernet is a testament to passion and superior craftsmanship as well as an idyllic marriage of grape varietals and terroir.
Today's wine certainly fills all of the requirements of succeeding in the lineage of previous vintages of Frog's Leap Estate Grown Cabernets, but it does so with a little twist. While Cabernet Franc is added every vintage to add lift and vibrancy to the final blend, 2015 suggested the need for a softening of the edges and a little more suppleness. Would a little Merlot from the Rossi blocks help? After many trials, the wine was bottled with 13% estate Merlot. The 2015 is a remarkable wine: rich, deep mocha aromas, superb balance, with very long and deep flavors of black fruits and cocoa. Is the Merlot contributing? Most definitely, yes. (from winery notes)

We only have 14 double magnums of this gorgeous homage to Napa Valley winemaking. Do the thing you really want to do before it's too late. Cheers!
