"93 points Wine & Spirits: "John Williams dry-farms this organically grown Zin, which contributes to its restrained style and relatively low alcohol (13.5 percent). It comes off as taut claret; the fresh raspberry flavor takes on a pleasing shape as it wraps around scents of pine, herb and earth. The wine has the kind of transparency that makes room for food. Served this with grilled quail." (02/09) One star from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "True to the winery's preferred style of balanced but understated wines, this one succeeds because of its keen varietal focus on the grape's blackberry-like potential. It is medium-full-bodied, bright and somewhat zesty in character, and its obvious acidity is here kept in check by solid fruit. Try it with red-sauced pastas or with Cajun-style fish preparations." (September 2008) Frog's Leap's 2006 Zinfandel is a field blend that also includes small proportions of petite sirah and carignane for aromatic and textural complexity. Not your usual suspect when it comes to Napa Valley zin, this wine takes its cues from the elegant zinfandels of the 1940s and 1950s. The wines wild berry aromas are punctuated by baking spices and a little white pepper on the nose. In the mouth the wine's fruit is balanced by soft tannins and bright acidity. This is a zin to enjoy with grilled meats."
