Frogs Leap Merlot 375 2009
The 2009 Merlot, a winery favorite, shows off the beautifully aromatic and richly flavored character of this varietal at its very best. More expressive than most red wines, the Merlot opens with aromas of plum, dark cherries, cocoa and spice and it fills the void where Pinot Noir is too simple and Cabernet Sauvignon too intense. Yet, it is in the flavors where Merlot really shows its culinary versatility; rich and plush but with the definite bite of bright acidity. This is a great bottle to reach for when roasting chicken, braising veal shank or grilling some portobello mushrooms.
Vineyards farmed responsibly. Serious wine presented with a warm sense of humor. This is Frog`s Leap. Bring a bottle to your table. Stash a few in your Cellar. Lift a glass with friends. Drink it. We`ll make more.
