Depending on where and how grape varieties are grown, they can express themselves in a myriad of ways. When selecting those vineyard blocks or rows or vines that might be appropriate for the Frog Prince blend, we look for the more subtle characteristics of the varieties, e.g. fresh fruits versus cooked, red fruits versus blue or black, a bit less alcohol, a bit more acid, and perhaps a bit of dried herbs. In many cases, the different varieties are fermented together to create something wholly unique.
The 2016 Frog Prince puts it all together in a classic Old World style wine. Aromas of raspberry, ripe cherry, and dried herbs entice your senses. The nose leads into the palate filled with layer upon layer of red fruit. A vigorous acidity carries throughout, and is further accentuated by firm tannins that taper off hand in hand on the finish.
This classic wine pairs with a juicy grilled steak.
