Filled with fragrant notes of rich black berry and traces of cocoa powder, the 2008 Frog's Leap Merlot exhibits a cascading flavor profile of ripened red berries and cherry accentuated by delicate notes of mocha, herbs and spice. The famed 'Rutherford Dust,' in which the grapes were grown, generates a mouth-feel and finish that is long and lovely all wrapped in plush, soft tannins. With such a diverse set of flavors and bright acidity this wine can be paired with a wide range of food from lamb stew to chocolate soufflé.
Smooth & Supple
Great tasting Merlot. Good for light or heavy meals.
