'John Williams, one of the wisest winemakers in Napa, cultivates old-school zinfandel. Restrained and subtle, it has high acidity, making it a great food-pairing wine. This has pungent blackberry and cherry fruit, with a long, pleasing finish.' - Will Lyons, The Times, November 2017

'Looking for a more restrained style? This dry-farmed Zinfandel is kept in check through co-fermentation with Carignan and Petite Sirah. At once attractively lively and herbal while maintaining Zinfandel's bouncy berry fruit profile. American oak lingers but resolves with a few years of bottle age.' - Matt Stamp, Decanter, May 2016

Frog's Leap, a pioneer in organic farming in Napa Valley, produces its Zinfandel wine using dry-farmed, organic grapes, resulting in a full-bodied wine with vibrant berry fruit flavors and oaky vanilla. With firm yet silky tannins, great intensity and balance, and a long finish, this wine is certainly worth a try this month. - Dom Smiley, OWC
