Frick Winery

 


    Frick Winery was one of the first to introduce Rhone varietal wines in the Dry Creek Valley. Bill Frick purchased the northeastern benchland vineyards and winery in 1986 and has been making wines from traditional Rhone varietals and Merlot since then. His winemaking style is based on the goal of highlighting the varietal expression. The oak barrels used are all neutral, bringing a minimum of oak flavor with their long, slow oxidation. Bill tends to harvest his grapes early to keep a higher natural acidity, which helps him express the specific terroir of his vineyards.
     The wines usually need a longer maturation time, and his portfolio consists of value wines that will age harmoniously in your cellar for years. If you are looking for a classical, varietal-respectful style of winemaking, Frick winery is a "must stop" in the Dry Creek Valley.



  Wines Offered: The Syrah and Rhone varietals are the strength of this winery. The Merlot can be delicious too.

  Marc's selection:
  •    Syrah, Owl Vineyard: This Syrah has a dark ruby hue, showing a restrained nose of violet and tar. The palate has a forward tannic structure with balanced acidity and a long finish.
