W&S 92 - A part of our family since 1990, Merlot holds a special place in the heart of Frog's 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.
Description

Details

W&S 92 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - John Williams consistently produces one of the freshest merlots in Napa Valley, this vintage light and pretty with supple plum and red currant flavors. It lacks the confected fruit of so many wines that bear the varietal name, hewing instead to clean lines and a long, mouthwatering finish. Pour it with roast duck.

Winemakers Notes - It is beautifully fragrant and, though it is lighter and less deeply textured than a typical Frog’s Leap Merlot, it has wonderful drinkability. But most of all is that it makes no apology, it celebrates its 2011-ishness: It is proud. It asked for a little help—a touch of its big brother Cabernet sauvignon and a splash of its cousin Cabernet franc—something it rarely does. But beyond that it kept whispering to me in the cellar, “Let me be the 2011 Frog’s Leap Merlot … I will not let you down”. And, it hasn’t. 88% Merlot 10% Cabernet sauvignon 2% Cabernet franc. 12.7% ABV.
