Even if you swore off Merlot after watching Sideways, Frog's Leap Merlot 2006 just might be the one that makes you go back to the shunned grape. The wine shows good fruit- plum, cherry, and currant- with an undertone of earthy herbs all integrated with cedar and cigar box notes. It has well-structured tannins and good acidity to pair with food. The icing on top: Frog's Leap winery farms organically in Rutherford, Napa Valley. $30.
