Not very bold on the nose or palate; matter fact just a bit watered down. I was really hoping for more. There are nodes of oak, cinnamon, and vanilla with predominant tart cherries. A let down because I was looking for a big full-bodied red; not getting that at all. I suppose I’ll have to hope more for the next bottle.

For you "Sideways" followers. This Merlot trumps all. Elegant, smooth, great structure. #frogsleap

Well balanced Merlot from Napa. Very plump and juicy. Two bottles in the cellar will sleep for a couple of more years..

Such a balanced new world merlot - dark fruit & earth & chocolate. Restrained & serious. Not wearing that new world velvet cloak 😉
