Solid. Confused for Malbec.

Well rounded Zinfandel. Nothing outrageous about it, very smooth, not very jammy, and a tad bit acidic. It was enjoyable but I probably wouldn’t seek it out.

Fresh raspberry, vanilla, some spice/mocha/ some bramble fruit. Lighter extraction and a lower alc than expected. Pretty crushable, actually

This was fantastic. Great depth and precision for a zin!

Zin, Petite Sirah, and Carignan. High yum factor! Wanted to try this before I visit the winery in 2 weeks. Needless to say I’m even more excited now.

1986. Still lively and drinking nicely if a little wobbly now. Drink up!

2003 drinks like a rustic Pinot noir / gamay- earthy and light and fruit driven - a surprise! If this is what 2003 zin was like (at 13 % sign me up)

Y'all can have your flashy new wineries, I'll keep drinking my old school wines. Frog's Leap still has the mojo!

2013 vintage. Dry-farmed Zinfandel co-fermented with Carignan, Petite Sirah and Valdigue. A more restrained style of Zin. Nose is not very attractive (animal-like), but the taste is much better with juicy cherries, bright acidity and lots of elegance for a Zin. Should age well. Would give a higher score if the nose was more appealing.
