    Winemaker's Notes:

    This New World-styled Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend offers intense aromas of tobacco leaf and blackberry on the nose, with hints of rose petal and green peppercorn. The wine is dry, but with a creamy texture, and is soft and intense and packed with fine-grained tannins. The finish is full of vanilla and orange extract. This is a wine to cellar.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dense and juicy, this is packed with disarmingly delicious currant, plum, roasted meat and mineral flavors, and when the finish kicks in this shows elegance and finesse. Offers power and personality, with deft balance.

    The 2008 Frederick Red Wine is made up of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc with the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. Spice box, Asian spices, cassis, and blackberry aromas are followed by a Bordeaux-like, relatively forward, savory, full-bodied wine that will deliver optimum drinking from 2012 through 2020.

    As with Andrew Wills' Two Blondes, Frederick Red is eccentric and BOLD more than lusty. I liked it better than Two Blondes but not by much. Both are excellent example of the best in Washington wine.

    This wine was very good with nice balance of fruit and tannins. It was much better after being allowed to decant for 1-2 hours. It removed the alcholol aroma from it. If I had known the price was going to go up so much I would have purchased a lot more.
