External Reviews for Frogs Leap Merlot
Tight, with an earthy streak running through the complex currant, berry and cherry fruit, though the flavors hold their focus. Drink now through 2001.
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.
Ruby-red. Plum, red currant, cedar, tobacco, loam and a lightly vegetal quality on the nose. Supple and sweet, with flavors similar to the aromas. A somewhat undifferentiated, simple wine but one with adequate acidity and good balance. Finishes with rather smooth tannins.
The 2005 Frog's Leap Merlot is predominantly grown in these soils, in the shadow of the Red Barn, yielding a wine of intensity and structure that needs no blending partner. With a dark garnet color, this wine's varietal character is
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.
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.
Smooth and supple, with a rich, complex core of earthy currant, plum, black cherry and herb flavors, finishing with notes of toasted oak and well-integrated tannins. Drink now through 2003.
