Frog’s Leap Winery, Napa Valley (California) Zinfandel 2018

($35):  Here’s a Zinfandel for those of us who generally avoid that wine.  Frog’s Leap signature style of restraint highlights the charms of the varietal.  Briary and spicy notes complement its dark fruitiness.  Bursting with flavor, yet not overdone, it’s balanced.  Those looking for a brawny powerhouse Zinfandel will be disappointed.   But those who want a wine you can actually drink throughout a meal of barbequed chicken with adore it.
