Frogs Leap Merlot Napa Valley 2011

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

Given those challenges we are proud to have succeeded in producing a wine that is both charming now and will have a place in our cellars for decades to come. It is beautifully fragrant and, though it is lighter and less deeply textured than a typical Frog's Leap Merlot, it has wonderful drinkability. But most of all is that it makes no apology, it celebrates its 2011-ishness: It is proud. It asked for a little help-a touch of its big brother Cabernet sauvignon and a splash of its cousin Cabernet franc-something it rarely does.
