Default Frog's Leap

I have been given a bottle of Frog's Leap Merlot 2004. The giver was not
sure if it would be ready to drink yet. Can you advise?

Thanks,

Gordon

Probably it was ready to drink on release.

Open it, enjoy it, have fun with it, and post what you think of it.

Most wines are easy fun.

Best regards,
Mark Sievert

If it wasn't stored properly, it may even be past its shelf life. I
would not wait to pop it as Frog's Leaps reds are no long agers.
