2019 Lady of the Dead by FRIAS 750ml
The 2019 Lady of the Dead has a backbone of Cabernet from Napa Valley, which is supplemented by Syrah, Mourvèdre and Graciano from premier vineyard sites in Paso Robles. The bouquet of this blend raises eyebrows. The complexity on the nose immediately indicates it is a wine of sophistication, to be taken seriously. It offers notes of violets & purple flowers, blue and black fruit, and a subtle hint of sweet oak, while deep underneath there is a nuance of freshly tilled earth. Dark fruit flavors and cassis on the palate are highlighted by top notes of Bing cherry and a touch of savory smoked meat. Great acidity and polished tannin make this wine a real treat to drink.
