Frisson Cabernet Sauvignon 2013--from this perfect vintage, 50% Diamond Mountain and 50%Rutherford seemingly bring out the best in each appellation. Has the potential for further aging, but why wait? Minimum score of 95 for this beauty. $60
Thanks to The Fermented Fruit for a thoughtful review of our latest release, the 2011 Frisson Napa Valley Cabernet.
Our 2012 Dutton Ranch Russian River Chardonnay earns more praise from the San Francisco Chronicle. It is drinking so beautifully now. Thanks for the recognition!
