WA 94 WS 93 W&S 93 Vinous 92 - Majority Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Cab Franc to make it interesting. Dark red, rich with plums, currants and tobacco, this wine will stand up to a big juicy steak and roasted vegetables. Another remarkable vintage for the Spring Valley Frederick.


WA 94 WS 93 W&S 93 Vinous 92 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - Slightly darker in color than the Uriah release, the 2012 Frederick checks in as a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 8% Malbec and a splash of Petit Verdot. It’s another classically styled, age-worthy wine from this estate that offers lots of tobacco leaf, lead pencil, currants and damp earth-like aromas and flavors. Elegant, ripe, medium to full-bodied and with fine tannin, enjoy it anytime over the coming 15 years.

According to Wine Spectator - Broad and expansive, though not weighty, this features a focused mouthful of ripe cherry, blueberry and dusky spice notes that whirl through the long and expressive finish. The lightly prickly tannins are unobtrusive. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Best from 2017 through 2022.

According to Wine & Spirits - Frederick comes from Spring Valley’s estate vineyard in Walla Walla’s Palouse Hills, the blend composed mostly of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. It’s spicy and savory, with a mace-like spice over dark, plummy fruit. There’s marvelous tension between the plush fruit and fine, feathery acidity, giving this the drive to enjoy now with a steak. Or wait a year for the wine’s charms to coalesce.

According to Stephen Tanzer - Dark red-ruby. Subdued but pure aromas of cassis, black cherry, graphite and licorice. Suave and perfumed in the mouth, showing a saline quality to the complex, subtle flavors of cherry, rose petal, minerals and chocolatey oak. Very suave, refined wine with a fine dusting of firm, noble tannins and noteworthy persistence. Not quite as sweet in the early going as the more Cabernet-dominated Uriah bottling, but boasts terrific subtle flavor intensity and length.

42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 8% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot. 14.3% ABV.
