Frog's Leap Napa valley 2007 Zinfandel Revisited

Frog's Leap Napa valley 2007 Zinfandel Revisited, $20.39, 90 points, poured an opaque ruby red transitioning to bright red and bleeding into the clear wine ring at the leggy glass bowl.
Aromatic with bright cinnamon, cedar, and wild blackberry with a hint of violets and underbrush (better than when I had this wine in both 2010 and 2011).
Medium-bodied, good acidity, mellow layers of still supplely supportive tannin managed a complex flavor profile of licorice, boysenberry, blackberry, tobacco and coffee notes.
Finished well on the trailing palate, mulberry, easy spices, and a perfect 13.4% alcohol.
Though this wine is still quite wonderful, I believe that it is down from its peak, and I'd advise, that if you have this vintage, you plan on opening it.
