    Winemaker's Notes:

    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    John Williams's crusade for dry farming in Napa makes sunse out of Merlot, a grape that responds to irrigation by racing to higher alcohol levels with each successive heat spike. This has some warmth, adding a gentle glow from within the fruit, the flavors clean and fragrant, the tannins lovely, dark in tone. A int of pyrazines adds buoyancy to the finish. For grilled quail.

    Had a glass of Frog's Leap Merlot at my birthday dinner on Kauai 8/23/11 and really enjoyed it. There are others I have liked better, I think they were smoother for me personally, but I was not disappointed. If this was the only Merlot available to me at a fine restaurant, I would buy it again.
