Kuleto Estate Frog Prince 2013 Napa Valley Red Blend Frog Prince deftly balances the fruit and non-fruit components of the varietal mix. Aromas of cherries and cherry blossom are backed up and made more complex by those of dried thyme and rosemary. It enters the mouth very softly and quietly and spreads very slowly to the outer edges of the palate. The fresh fruit flavor persists nicely while your teeth become coated with a pleasing nutty tannin quality. This wine is delicious now, will age beautifully, and should be very versatile with all kinds of foods.
