Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
"The 2006 Bionic Frog Syrah has an awesome perfume that jumps from the glass. Notes of forest floor, underbrush, mushrooms, liquid minerals, blueberry, and black cherry lead to a remarkably succulent, voluptuous wine that is entirely seductive. Imagine having to choose between your ideal fantasy sexual partner and this wine – and you choose The Frog! That’s how good it is."
The Wine Advocate
"Ripe, complex, harmonious and multilayered, weaving its green olive, tobacco, ironstone and mineral flavors deftly through the ripe blackberry, boysenberry and plum flavors, finishing long and expressive."
"Bright, full ruby-red. A compelling expression of syrah on the nose: black raspberry, smoked meat, mocha, minerals, black olive tapenade, celery salt. Wonderfully sweet and exotic, with a lush, seamless texture of liquid velvet. The full, rich flavors of blueberry, raspberry, olive and pepper are given shape and lift by floral and mineral elements. This creamy wine borrows from all the syrah food groups. Finishes very long and a bit youthfully medicinal, with sexy pepper and spice notes. This was aged entirely in Dominique Laurent's "magic casks," 25% of them new. The fruit comes from the Coccinelle Vineyard, which like En Cerise and Cailloux is planted on its own rootstock."
