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.
About this Wine What happens when you combine Frog’s Leap’s classic Zinfandel style with one of the finest vintages in recent memory? Superb raspberry, huckleberry aromas followed by taut, refined, seductive flavors of red fruit compote layered with spice and a sensuous mouth-feel that makes this wine one for the ages. This is serious wine: beautifully proportioned and sophisticated. We will understand your desire to drink this wine now at your summer barbeques but, we beg you, consider putting a few bottles down in your cellar. We’re putting down an extra few ourselves! - Winery The Blend: 76% Zinfandel 23% Petite sirah 1% Carignan Aged: 12 months in American oak Alcohol: 13.7% TA: 5.8 g/L pH: 3.64
