Frias Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

From the best lots picked off steep, rocky hillsides of red clay and volcanic ash. This exclusive Cabernet has a sprinkling of juicy, vibrant syrah and merlot to balance. Dense and concentrated, with complex fruit flavors of plum, black currant, dried herbs and cedar finishing with a supple texture and fine tannins.

Our wine is about differences and a slice of life. We offer a 100% single vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and a microclimate taste of the Spring Mountain Appellation. Frias Family Vineyards was founded with our first official vintage in 1991. We purchased 100 acres in 1977 and planted only 5 acres in 1985. We focus only on producing the finest Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Our operation is small and family owned. My wife and grown children help carry out this labor of love by participating in nurturing the vines, blending, bottling and of course quality control! Read less

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

This under-the-radar Spring Mountain winery has been making fine Cabernets since the early 1990s. James Laube of The Wine Spectator has desfribed the Frias style as "Supple, graceful and complex, with a core of fruit built around plum, black cherry, herb and cedary oak flavors that keep revealing extra nuances."
