Cellar for up to 9 years. No need to decant before serving.

Frog’s Leap takes its unusual name from the practice of frog farming which took place back in the 19th century on the land where the original winery sat. Today considered one of Napa’s most iconic estates, the modern winery was founded in 1981 by John Williams and Larry Turley who started out their careers working at top wineries like Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. To found their own winery the duo were forced to sell their motorbikes since they were unable to find a bank willing to fund such a risky endeavour as setting up a winery.

The winery then moved in 1995 to a new location at the Red Barn in Rutherford, developing a greater focus on both quality and sustainability. They now only work with organically grown grapes and do not irrigate their vines unless absolutely necessary. Above all their wines are elegant and complex, taking inspiration from the finest examples on the market and interpreting their greatness in a way that is distinctively their own.

A great example is this classy Zinfandel which was made in the style of the elegant Zinfandel-dominant field blends produced in California in the 1940s and 1950s. Rather than being incredibly powerful and full bodied, this refined Zin boasts a complex and intensely perfumed nose followed by luscious berry flavours, smooth tannins and a very long finish.
