It's light for a Zinfandel but smooth and packed with plenty of flavor.

The farming method for this wine is old-world – a field blend of five different red grapes from organic fruit (some of which are not yet certified). What’s in the bottle too, is from another time – thankfully. This is not your typical bruiser of a Zinfandel loaded with ultra-sweet, overripe fruit exacerbated by stratospheric alcohol. So, if you like your Zins fashioned in the latter way, pass this one by. But for those of us who still appreciate a well-made, delicious, well-balanced wine, this one’s for the rest of us. It’s alluringly pretty with black fruit and a hint of baking spices – cocoa and clove; and its round and bright. It’s the way I wish all Zins would be, but I’m tilting at broken-bladed windmills, I know. The wine, which was made in 90 percent American oak (15 percent of which was new with the rest being up to seven years old), for a year, is barely a Zinfandel, as the law has it. It’s the requisite 75 percent with rest a combination of Petite Sirah, Carignane, and Napa Gamay, the latter of which we don’t see too much of around the Napa Valley. The grapes are from several sources (Frog’s Leap doesn’t grow any Zin on its Rutherford ranch): 46% Garden, 19% Battuello, 8% Varozza, St. Helena; 11% Galleron, 6% Leeds, 3% Rossi, Rutherford; and 7% Dalraddy, Chiles Valley. The listed alcohol is 14.2 percent and there were 9,400 cases made. Another thing: check the price. It’s well worth it. It will develop too over the next half-dozen years.

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 dried ranberries and wild berry. Lush layers of cherry and boysenberry delight the palate while subtle nuances of oak and earth never overwhelm. Bright acid balances soft tannins resulting in a plush, lingering finish. This Zinfandel complements a meal or is delicious on its own.
