John Williams dry-farms this organically grown zin, which contributes to its restrained style and relatively low alcohol (13.5 percent). It comes off as taut claret; the fresh raspberry flavor takes on a pleasing shape as it wraps around scents of pine, herb and earth. The wine has the kind of transparency that makes room for food. Serve this with grilled quail.

Fashioned as a claret, this wine smells like a classic Zin, purely California, deliciously fresh. Sweet spices provide significant complexity, the dark-toned fruit touched by scents of tobacco, sassafras and jasmine. It's full in texture without feeling weighty, bottled summer to brighten a winter night.

Delicate, with a band of smoky strawberry and tea flavors. Finishes soft and focused, with pleasant spice and oak notes. Drink now.

Go ahead... take the leap - Frog's Leap. Their Zinfandel is from old, organically farmed vineyards that yield intensely flavored grapes. Lush, full-bodied and bursting with ripe blackberry and peppery spice. From the heart of Napa - clearly a prince.

This Zinfandel is a classic field-blend revealing the vitality of Zinfandel and the depth of Petite Sirah. The first sensations are aromas of cinnamon and clove which underscore the rich layers of dri

This is a straightforward, dark ruby/plum-colored 1999 offering cherry, raspberry, and briery fruit, plenty of spice, medium body, a narrow texture and good freshness and vibrancy. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Varietal intensity is an easy goal to set as winemakers, but it is nonetheless one often missed by today's Zins. This hits the mark immediately, with aromas of cardamom and clove mixing with the classic Zinfandel qualities of wild berry and brambly fruits. Across the palate the wine continues to reveal layers of fruit and earth that range from cherry and plum to cigar box and leather. The resolved tannins and plush texture complete a Zin that is both rich and quaffable.This wine has always been the chameleon of the table, so try it with anything. It is sure to please.
