Frog's Leap, Merlot, 2016

“2016 has given us another outstanding classic Merlot continuing a tradition reaching back to 1990. All of our 2016 reds are showing tremendous depth and richness across the flavors. Merlot with its well-deserved reputation for plushness particularly shines in a vintage like this. We added a splash of Cabernet sauvignon this year just to stiffen the spine of the wine but make
no mistake this is Merlot in all of its finery through and through.
Bright plummy and red berry flavors lead the way but it is the texture of the wine that will stay with you. I’m thinking of a lightly-seared veal chop with a creamy sauce of early fall morels myself. Drinkable right now? Absolutely. But don’t be afraid to put down a few of these beauties in the cellar. You will thank me later.”
