We tasted the newest release of Frias Vineyard’s ‘Lady of the Dead’ Cabernet Sauvignon last month and loved it. Coming from the Frias estate vineyard on Spring Mountain along with great fruit sources in Oakville and Yountville AVAs, this lush, silky Cabernet is an incredible wine for its price and we highly recommend it. ‘Lady of the Dead’ is an homage to the Frias family’s heritage and refers to Mexico’s ‘Dias de las Muertos’, the multi-day holiday remembering family who have died. “Composed of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Syrah, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Red Blend Lady of the Dead delivers expressive spice cake, baked plums, blackberry pie and blackcurrant pastilles scents with touches of hoisin and cigar box. Full-bodied, the palate is coated with wonderfully spicy fruitcake layers and textured with chewy tannins, finishing with great persistence.” 91 Points, Wine Advocate.
