Winemaker's Notes

A decade after its first production, our Merlot has firmly established itself as one of Frog's Leap's most consistently superb varietals. The excellence begins in our vineyards, with the inspired combination of strong-backed, deeply ßavored Carneros fruit and seductively flavored, intensively aromatic fruit from Rutherford. The essence of our dry-farmed, organically-grown fruit is best left simply prepared. From the moment the fruit arrives from the vineyards, our winemaking team instinctively knows that heavy-handed winemaking techniques have no place in their cellar and gently allow the wine to come into its own. Our partnership with the fruit nurtures a wine that possesses a deeply reßective sense of place. Frog's Leap 2000 Merlot is pungent with ripe red fruit aromatics, satisfying with mouth-filling plumy flavors and bracing with a strong tannic spine and bright acidity. It is balanced, supple, harmonious, and elegant. Truly a wine as nature intended.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...
