Spring Valley Frederick 2015
|Region||United States, Washington, Walla Walla Valley|
Impressively combines a firm, structured backbone with polished and expressive black cherry and dusky spice flavors that take on richness toward broad-shouldered but polished tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Best from 2021 through 2026. 2,992 cases made.
Another blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the 2015 Frederick isn't too far from the Uriah, offering up aromas of spicy berry fruit and a juicy, medium to full-bodied palate with an attractively textural attack, powdery structuring tannins and juicy acids.
This wine is a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec. The aromas are generous, with notes of braised green pepper, fresh herb, cherry and flower, with the palate showing more of the same. It comes off as pretty green and a bit dried out. Drink now.
