Frog's Leap Napa Valley 2009 Zinfandel

Frog's Leap Napa Valley 2009 Zinfandel, $26.99-$28.99, 91 points, has a slightly cloudy cranberry red color with flashes of ruby orange.
A toasty red grape aroma has hints of coconut and chocolate (very nice).
The juicy medium body of this Zinfandel carries good acidity and moderate tannin.
The flavors of bright tart red cherry, plum, with hints of violets, licorice, and dried herbs are well blended.
Frog's Leap 2009 Zinfandel finishes long on cayenne pepper with a pleasant citrus note (unusual for a Zin).
This wine is drinking great now, but I'm guessing it will develop for some time.

  1. Have always had good luck with Frog's Leap Zins in the past, but haven't had one in absolutely ages...must rectify that.

    1. V-girl, I forgot to tell you that it's only 13.6% alcohol:-)
