Full-throttle Merlot here, oaky, tannic and dry. It's a young wine now, somewhat sharp and edgy, but with a promising future. The cherry flavors should sweeten and the tannins soften with three or four years of proper cellaring.

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.

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.

Tight, with an earthy streak running through the complex currant, berry and cherry fruit, though the flavors hold their focus. Drink now through 2001.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The wine will do nicely with all the traditional Merlot pairings but will especially shine in dishes where you have decided to step it up a bit: a deeper braise, a richer stock, a more concentrated sauce. This is a wine of extraordinary pleasure, one that will be enjoyed for decades to come." -Winery
