Frei Brothers Reserve was established in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley by Swiss immigrant Andrew Frei. In operation since 1890, Frei Ranch and the winery have played an integral part in establishing the region’s premier reputation for winemaking and continue to produce exceptional wines today by carrying on the rich legacy of both their home vineyard and Sonoma’s celebrated growing regions. Frei Brothers Reserve begins by growing the best grapes in the best growing regions and ends with award-winning wines. Frei Brothers Reserve also believes in better choices and better wine–today and for generations to come. Led by chief viticulturist Jim Collins, the wines are a pure expression of the land, made from premium grapes carefully grown in some of the best wine-growing regions in Sonoma County, including the Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley. The winery crafts six critically acclaimed wines, including Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc Read more »

  • Cabernet Sauvignon My top scoring wine among these is the Malk, though the Trinitas offered alot of wine for a very price. Ultimately my personal choice among these wines is the Sausal. It's a classic old school style of California Cabernet bursting with ripe fruit and subtle notes of American oak. I love California Cabernet because it can be s... Read More

  • Frei Brothers Merlot Dry Creek Reserve 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet woods tones, a touch herbal and earthy though with a strong coffee/mocha element and smoked meat notes. This is attractively silky in the mouth with fine, slightly granular tannins that give this a bit of textural detail.

    Snoothrank:

    Snoothrank:

    Loud ripe cherries on the nose. Super ripe bright fruit with silky tanins but a slight bitter chemical aftertaste I can't pin down. Very enjoyable though. Read More

  • Frei Russian River Syrah Usa Red 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Mealy overripe fruit on the nose. If you breathe too much it smells like a Sharpie. Gritty plums with light prickly blueberries on the finish. Not too sure about this one. Read More

  • Frei Russian River Syrah Usa Red 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Aromas of permanent markers and rotting fruit. The saving grace is artificial grape flavor a.k.a purple. I hope they're not A-Frei-d of making a good wine. Read More
