Frogs Leap Merlot, Rutherford Napa Valley, 2017
Balance, restraint and deep respect for the natural expression of the vine. Made by and family since 1981. By limiting our plantings to the rare swaths of clay-rich loam that dot Rutherford, we are able to craft a Merlot that balances the grape's hallmark rich, supple texture with complex aromas of savory mocha, mint and succulent red fruit. - JW. frogsleap.com.
