Frogs Leap Merlot 375 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Filled with fragrant notes of rich black berry and traces of cocoa powder, the 2009 Frog s Leap Merlot exhibits a cascading flavor profile of ripened red berries and cherry accentuated by delicate notes of mocha, herbs and spice.
