PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Frog's Leap proprietor John Williams has an impressive winemaking resume dating back over 40 years, cutting his teeth at Stag's Leap and Spring Mountain Wineries before striking out on his own. His reverence for the old-school wines of Inglenook and Beaulieu Estates led him to Rutherford, where the well-drained soils provided the building blocks for their transcendent, terroir-driven wines. His purchase of the Red Barn Vineyard in 1994, followed by a partnership with the owners of Chavez Leeds Vineyard and the acquisition of the historic Rossi Vineyard in Rutherford Bench, set the stage for Frog's Leap to follow in the footsteps of these iconic wineries. The 2013 Frog's Leap Merlot is a testament to passion and superior craftsmanship as well as an idyllic marriage of grape varietals and terroir.

The 2013 Frog's Leap Merlot Rutherford is blended with 17% cabernet sauvignon and 1% cabernet franc and is aged for 18 months in French and American oak. The merlot is sourced from vineyard blocks in the Eastern part of Rutherford that are rich in clay loam soils, which are ideal for the cultivation of merlot. The finished wine strikes the perfect balance between power and elegance. Check out the press!

92 points, Vinous:
"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 delicious and impeccable in its balance. (10/15)

90 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"There's a healthy 17% cabernet sauvignon and 1% cabernet franc in this wine, which is classically structured in red fruit, soft oak, and peppery spice. Its cedar notes speak to the cabernet within, while the overall texture and breadth of the wine is lengthy, food-ready, and impressive." (6/1/16)
