The Vineyard A drive along the Silverado Trail through Rutherford is a journey through Napa Valley winemaking history. Over the years, touched by the hands of the Napa’s historical greats such as Georges de Latour and Andre Tschelistcheff, this vineyard has produced a myriad of famed vintages of stellar cabernets. Today, this valley floor vineyard boasts new clones and advanced systems of cultivation and trellising that enhance both quality and yields from the gravelly-loam soils. The unique combination of higher temperatures and cooling marine influences, yield a distinctive earthiness, or “dust”, and bright red fruit notes with intriguing complexity. Frisson lays claim to rows in the heart of this appellation, well placed atop the famed Rutherford Bench. Tasting Notes This complex red wine exhibits an intriguing nose of violets, blueberry pie, allspice and vanilla custard, pipe tobacco. Refined, dusty tannins along with its balanced acidity complement the blue fruit and spice aromas on the finish. Pairings: Grilled rib eye steak, braised short ribs, roast lamb with rosemary.
