Lady of the Dead Red 2019750ml
Founded in 1977 by Mexican immigrants Manny and Maria Frias, Frias Family Vineyard is an artisanal family-owned winery located in the Napa Valley sourcing premium fruit from both Spring Mountain and Oakville AVAs. They specialize in small production and terroir-driven wines like this exceptional red blend. The 2019 Lady of the Dead has a backbone of Cabernet from Napa Valley, supplemented by Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Graciano from premier vineyard sites in Paso Robles. The complexity on the nose immediately indicates it is a wine to be taken seriously. It offers notes of violets & purple flowers, blue and black fruit, and a subtle hint of sweet oak, while with a nuance of freshly tilled earth underneath. Dark red berries and cassis on the palate are highlighted by top notes of Bing cherry and a touch of savory smoked meat.
Frias Family Vineyards suffered losses in the recent California wildfires, and are hard at work rebuilding for new releases. With great acidity and polished tannins this wine is truly a rare treat.

A native of Jalisco, Mexico, Manuel (Manny) Frias Sr. moved to the United States with his family in 1951. He grew up in San Francisco, California, where he was introduced to the luxury of Napa Valley wines in college. After the completion of three master’s degrees in Education and Administration, Counseling, and Spanish Literature, Manny couldn’t wait for the chance to buy property in the beautiful Napa Valley. In 1977, Manny was finally able to secure his dream of 100 hillside acres that primarily sat in the prestigious Spring Mountain District AVA. Today, Manny Sr. enjoys managing the Frias Family Vineyard with his family and a small crew, sourcing premium fruit from both Spring Mountain and Oakville AVAs.
