Frog's Leap Merlot 2013

Frog's Leap Merlot 2013

Rating
 Vinous 92 points (Oct 2015)
The 2013 Merlot is plump and juicy, with plenty of dark red and bluish fruit. Sweet spice, lavender and rose petal open up in the glass, adding further shades of nuance. The Frog’s Leap Merlot is not super complex, but it sure is delicious and impeccable in its balance.

Wine maker notes
A part of our family since 1990, Merlot holds a special place in the heart of Frogs Leap as the majority of the fruit comes from the Estate surrounding our winery and historic Red Barn. Situated in the eastern part of Rutherford this vineyard is perfectly suited for growing Merlot due to its rich, clay loam soils. We have found over the years that Merlot likes “cool feet” and a “warm body.” The clay soils hold more moisture keeping the root-zone cool, while the setting sun over the Mayacamas gives our vines an extra hour of evening sun. Sustainable and dry farming practices reveal the true personality of the varietal, which we describe as having red fruit flavors with a soft, supple texture. We believe that our Merlot is another great ambassador of the Frogs Leap style - elegant, balanced and restrained.
ABOUT THE WINE
Dark ruby in color, our 2006 Merlot radiates bright aromatics of ripe plum underscored by notes of cocoa. Mouth-filling flavors of cherry and currants are laced with hints of cigar box and dried herbs.
Medium bodied and smooth in texture, the succulent fruit core is balanced by delicate acidity and plush tannins that offer a lingering finish.
