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.

78/20/2 blend of Zinfandel, Petit sirah and Carignane. Purple, moderately extracted pigment, very good clarity. Raspberry and black currant notes in nose. Tart cherry and blackberry flavors; needs time to open for fruit, acidity. Mild skin tannins on finish, acids soften with opening. Prune note in nose emerges after 30 minutes.

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.
