Frog's Leap Zinfandel 2021
Using their now well-established technique of cold-soaking the Petite Sirah portion of the co-ferment and then infusing it into the fermenting Zinfandel ten days later, Frog's Leap Winery locks in the freshness of the fruit and accentuate the elegance of the resulting wine. A dash of Carignane adds additional acidity and structure, preserved nicely by their practice of aging Zinfandel largely in small concrete tanks. The resulting wine is beautiful: deeply flavored, balanced, and fresh—a great summer drinker to be sure, especially with a quick chill. But don’t be afraid to put a few bottles away in the cellar; like all Frog’s Leap Zins, this wine has decades of life ahead of it.
Blend: 81% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah, 9% Carignane
