FRIAS Holiday Set
2017 Block Five:
Full bodied and layered, BLOCK FIVE builds incrementally on the palate with luscious dark fruits wrapped in a sweet roundness accented by toffee, tobacco, allspice, and hints of black tea. BLOCK FIVE offers savory dark fruits, licorice, blueberry, baked clay, and toasty notes with underlying creosote and damp earth. With hedonistic depth and racy tannins, the third vintage of this red blend.
Supple, juicy, and round on the palate with a boysenberry core. PRADO’s deep and long- focused intensity of fruit is complimented by mocha and cinnamon. Saturated dark fruits of blackberry and black plum interplay with floral violet, anise, graphite, cedar, and candied fruit. A lingering acidity helps reveal vibrant layers and long-lasting purity with a playful finish.
Our flagship wine SMD, gives up rich dark fruits mingling with tobacco leaf, savory meats, toasty oak, floral vanilla, and graphite in the nose. The forward bright fruit on the palate carries a soft sweetness that turns dense with mocha, raspberry and currant that also give a grip to the supporting structure and vibrant finish.
