Frog’s Leap Zinfandel

Frog’s Leap

Zinfandel

2011

(Napa Valley)

Zinfandel-label_72

On Bottle/Website:

* 85% Zinfandel, 14.5% Petit Sirah, 0.5% Carignane

* Not exactly fresh fruit and not really jam, either

* Summer fruit: strawberry, raspberry, fig, huckleberry

* Sophisticated and fun

* Surprising flavors, no jammy sweetness

* Taut, refined and reminiscent of a very fine Tuscan Chianti

My Notes:

Appearance:  clear, black, pink rim variation, high viscosity

Nose: sound/clean, medium plus intensity, aroma/youthful, plum, boysenberry, jammy, cherry cola, eucalyptis

Palate: dry, medium/full bodied, confirms nose, medium high tannins, medium plus alcohol, medium acidity, medium plus complexity, medium plus length
