Frias Family Vineyards Lady of the Dead 2018 / 750 ml.

Item#: 95022

JD9494 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - January 27, 2021
The 2018 Lady Of The Dead is an interesting multiple appellation blend that’s 73% from Napa Valley and 27% From Paso Robles. The blend is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Syrah, and the rest a mix of Petite Sirah, Carignan, Mourvèdre, and Graciano. Loads of jammy blackberry and cassis fruits as well as incense, flowers, and peppery herbs emerge from this full-bodied, pure, straight-up delicious red. Drink it any time over the coming 7–8 years, possibly a decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)

My perennial favorite label for Day of the Dead/Halloween, the 2018 Red Blend Lady of the Dead is composed of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Syrah, 5% Petite Sirah, 3% Carignan, 3% Mourvedre and 1% Graciano. Deep garnet-purple in color, it sails out of the glass with notions of warm cassis, wild blueberries and red roses plus hints of chocolate mint and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a great intensity of pure, bright black fruits with a refreshing backbone and soft tannins, finishing long and perfumed. 1,449 cases made.

Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

View more wines from United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

I was blown away by the 2018 M by Michael Mondavi, an incredible wine based on 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 16% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot. Deep, full-bodied, and opulent, yet with perfect balance and a seamless, layered mouthfeel, it has beautiful darker fruits, notes of leafy herbs and chocolate, perfectly integrated oak, and silky tannins. This majestic, flat-out awesome wine will evolve for 20+ years. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Classy cabernet characters with red chili pepper, cassis and tobacco with some cocoa powder, incense and fine spices to the ripe plum and blackberries. Refined and precise, with a medium to full body teeming with blackberries. A natural, supple acidity is rounded by plenty of dusty tannins, Shows restraint and elegance in its long, subtle finish. Drink now. (James Suckling)

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 16% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2018 M Red Wine is an excellent wine, with classic scents of ripe cherries, cedar and vanilla alongside faint sage-like herbal shadings. It’s medium to full-bodied, velvety and smooth, with a gentle sweep of softly dusty tannins across the finish. Nicely done. (Joe Czerwinski)

A ripe, polished style, with currant, plum and blackberry preserves lined with mocha-accented toast, sweet tobacco and melted licorice. Stays reserved in feel overall and relies a bit on the toast, but there’s ample fruit in reserve. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2034. 400 cases made. (James Molesworth)

Blackberry, black-olive and bark aromas with some dark mushroom follow through to a full body with round, creamy tannins that are polished and refined. Shows serious structure at the end of the palate. Needs four or five year to come around, but already attractive to taste. Try after 2026.
RP94+94+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 18th Mar 2021
The 2018 Reserve Proprietary Red opens with notions of dark chocolate, unsmoked cigars, forest floor and black truffles, leading to a core of blackcurrant preserves, blackberry pie and stewed plums. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a burst of black fruit preserves and savory accents, supported by a solid structure of grainy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with great length. 112 cases were made.

Ripe and fresh, with a sassafras edge amid a juicy and broad mix of plum, blackberry and raspberry compote flavors. Singed vanilla frames the finish, while letting the fruit play out nicely. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 111 cases made.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon 1913 is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose bursts with bold notes of warm cassis, blackberry pie, chocolate mint and tobacco with wafts of cedar chest and potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it has a solid frame of lovely, ripe, grainy tannins to support the bags of black fruit, finishing with impressive purity. 1,972 cases were made.

A new project from Ed Snider at Beau Vigne, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon 1913 checks in as 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot. A smoking value, it gives up lots of chocolaty dark fruits, cassis, tobacco, and cedary spice notes to go with full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It will compete with wines three times the cost. (Jeb Dunnuck)
