Frog's Leap Zinfandel Napa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The Frog's Leap 2006 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 cranberries 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. Rich yet quaffable, this Zinfandel is a wine that both complements a meal or is delicious on its own.

One of my favorite Zinfandel in this price range. I will continue to purchase this and hope to try multiple vintages. New world style that is fruit-forward with still that slight hint of spice the pairs well with red meat or BBQ. Great quality and a wine I always reach for when looking for a gift here in Texas. Wonderful!

Nice overall wine, although it shares more characteristics with a Merlot then classic Zin. Earthy aromas, dark berries, a bit of acid. Not a fruit bomb, much more subtle. Very enjoyable, but at this price point, I think there are better choices. For a few bucks more, I'd rather find a Michael David Earthquake Zin.

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

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.

Elegant, with cool climate berry fruit presented in a tangy, medium-bodied style, this fresh Zinfandel offers an antidote to those big, heavyweight bruisers. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

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.

Winemaker Notes - Lush layers of wild raspberry and mulberry underscored with a touch of cinnamon and white pepper. The tannins are polished and the texture is plush.

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.
