Frog's Leap is one of the best-known wineries from the West Coast. Their Merlot is laden with currant, black cherries, and toasted-nutty flavors, and pairs perfectly with rosemary-roasted lamb.

There's an ashy, sage and thyme edge to this ripe young Merlot that actually adds interest to the cherry, blackberry and cranberry aromas and flavors. The wine is voluptuously rich, almost decadent, so ripe is the fruit and so fine are the tannins, but it never loses its dry sense of balance. Very Bordeaux-like in elegance.

The aroma reminded us of plums, juicy, bright fruit and smoked ham, with notes of garlic and several spices, including clove. It had a lush texture that "makes you want to take another sip," one of our tasters said. Easy drinking and well balanced.

Tightly wound and well-focused, with spicy blackberry, leather, anise, mocha and mineral flavors, finishing with a rich aftertaste and firm, integrated tannins. Drink now through 2009.

Ripe, firm and focused, with a red currant and cherry core. Lingers on the finish, picking up spicy toasted oak notes. Tannins are firm but well integrated. Drink now through 2005.

Wine Tasting NotesContinuing our recent tradition of keeping this wine 100% Merlot, the vintage delivers pure varietal aromas and flavors with enough body and depth to defy the myth that Merlot is Cabernet with training wheels. With a deep garnet color, the wine offers aromas of red currant, damp earth and a touch of cedar. Across the palate the wines soft and plush texture is full of fruit flavors - plum and black cherry lead to a lingering finish that hints at toasted almonds. This wines resolved tannins, subtle oak and supple mouthfeel make it well suited for roasted rack of lamb with a Bing cherry jus.

Ripe and complex, with high-toned cola, blackberry, cranberry and wild berry flavors that are elegant and refined, finishing with good length and ripe, integrated tannins. Drink now through 2008.
