Frog's Leap Napa Valley 2010 Zinfandel

Frog's Leap Napa Valley 2010 Zinfandel,
$22.94-$28.99, 91 points, appears dense ruby with an almost Shiraz purple color and a  silver rimmed lining.
Followed by a generous, but balanced red and black cherry aroma and accented with mild sweet cooking spice.
This is like a Gamba Family Ranches Russian River Valley "Lite" Zinfandel, having a medium body with good acidity and mild tannin.
More floral flavored than other Frog's Leap Zinfandel wines I've tasted, but easy flavors of plum, blackberry, licorice, and unnoticeable alcohol (13.8%), make this a very good stand-alone wine, or paired with more traditional red-wine fare.
Finally, the long finish is mild spice and hints of eucalyptus.
As I was planning to review some Zinfandel wines, I posted an introduction by-way-of “Dance with the one who brung you”, and certainly Frog's Leap and Newbie Me were there.

  1. Anyone know where the Vineyard got their name?

  2. Dennis,

    I not too sure where the Vineyard got their name,but I think the name of the Wine came from the story in Exodus chapter8.

  3. Ed, I trust that's not just a "Leap of faith"!
