Frogs Leap Merlot 2002

The purity of the merlot varietal shows in the wine?s classic aromas of cherry and ripe red fruit. On the palate one can easily taste why Cab wasn?t needed for structure ? this wine has a balance that is best left to stand on its own. Flavors of chocolate, plum and pepper find great harmony with the plush, soft texture of this merlot. With ripe fruit and clean flavors the wine is a perfect match with frisee aux lardons.
