The Frederick bottling complements the Uriah, with Cabernet Sauvignon comprising half the blend. All five Bordeaux grapes are included, and the finished wine is aged for 21 months in two thirds new French oak. It all adds up to a lush, high alcohol, jammy wine with black cherry fruit framed in toasty barrel flavors.
