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.
"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."
