Refined and impeccably structured, with floral black cherry and dusty dried spice aromas, and complex plum, olive and mocha flavors that glide toward polished tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2023. *Top 100 Wines of 2017* (TF)
Aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants and chocolate. Some fresh flowers, too. Medium body, dusty tannins and a juicy finish. An attractive and soft red.
One of my favorites in the lineup, the 2014 Frederick checks in as a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec. It has classic notes of cedary spice, lead pencil shaving and currants as well as medium to full-bodied, richness, solid overall balance and building tannin. I suspect it will benefit from short term cellaring and keep for a decade. (JD)
Bright, dark red. Discreet scents of raspberry, cherry, rose petal and cedar. Plush and ripe but showing less obvious easygoing sweetness and a bit more structure than the Uriah or Katherine Corkrum bottlings. Juicy cherry, licorice and spice flavors reveal a complicating savory quality. Finishes with building dusty tannins and excellent spine and length. (ST)
Spring Valley’s Cabernet Sauvignon–heavy estate blend has a cedary, cinnamon-stick coating of spice, with velvety, dark plum fruit. The texture feels oak derived, but pleasingly lean and elegant as a result, buoyed by enough acidity to keep the wine lively and linear.
A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, and 3% Malbec, the 2014 Frederick Red Wine also offers an herbal edge yet has more purity and freshness. Blackcurrants, tobacco leaf, leafy herbs, and damp earthy notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, balanced, thoroughly enjoyable red that will continue drinking nicely for a decade or more.
This wine is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 13% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec. Aromas of cocoa, bittersweet chocolate, wood spice, graphite and herb lead to sweet full-bodied plum and coffee flavors. It has a lot of textural appeal, with lightly chalky tannins providing support. (SS)
