External Reviews for Frog's Leap Zinfandel
A wine that expresses its intensity through complex layers instead of simple, brute power. It is almost impossible to describe the zesty 'fruit bowl' of aromatics: Raspberry? Blackberry? Mulberry? Perhaps razzmatazz berry describes it best. The addition of Petite Sirah underscores the ripe fruit flavors and adds a spicy touch of cardamom and cinnamon. Plush without ever being heavy or harsh.
Dry farmed and organically grown, this zin is blended with petite sirah (14 percent) and a drop of carignan in an old-school Napa Valley style. It’s meaty and smooth, with mellow black plum fruitiness cut by spicy cracked black peppercorn scents. The kind of wine to drink with take-out malfatti in Napa (see Wolfgang Weber’s article in the Fall issue for sources).
"The aromatics of this classic field blend present a delightful challenge to the nose. Not exactly fresh fruit and not really jam, either. Rather, it’s like a bunch of summer fruit—strawberry, raspberry, fig, and huckleberry—all conserved together in one aromatic package. It’s sophisticated in the depth of its aroma profile and fun at the same time. The flavors are a big surprise as well—no jammy sweetness. Instead the wine is taut, refined and reminiscent of a very fine Tuscan Chianti and absolutely the right counterpoint to the aromas. This wine promises great things for sophisticated culinary efforts a few years down the line, but in the meantime you’ll love it with this summer’s barbeques!" -Winery
