25 Apr Frias Reds

We’ve been in a bit of a love affair with this winery since we started working with their Cabernet blend “Topografia” last year. Now we’ve brought in two more awesome estate reds that we think over-deliver at $40. Wines like this, made with all mountain fruit, usually go for well over $100, so these really are incredible bargains.

2013 Frias Syrah, Oak Knoll District

This beauty has aromas of brown sugar and cinnamon, with a savory palate of black pepper, dark cocoa, smoky meats, and black cherry. The finish is long and persistent.

2013 Frias Topografia Red Blend, Spring Mountain District
On sale $42.99 (lowest price online!)
(Blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Franc)
This lovely blend is like Bordeaux meets Napa. It’s earthy and complex, with a good balance of fruit and acid on the finish. Notes of black currant, raspberry, and sandalwood blend harmoniously into a finish with hints of pepper and spices. Spring Mountain wines are usually much more expensive. This is a steal!
