A red dark color with bright red reflection fill the glass as dark and red fruits sing across the nose. This gives way to dark cherry and blackberry sensations on the palate with a vivid medium to full palate and a solid tannin structure underlining a chewy, yet silky finish.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas and flavors that are varied, multiple, and concentrated with black currant, black cherry, and raspberry sorbet with hints of Rutherford dust. This very traditional Cabernet Sauvignon shows discrete and fleeting hints of fine herb. This leads to an intense concentration of fruit together with spice, vanilla bean, and toasted oak. The texture is firm, rich, and pleasingly full-bodied with a long finish.
A true reflection of the signature Frisson style, this Cabernet Sauvignon embodies an old world meets new world style. Our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is hand crafted from our Rutherford, Atlas Peak and Oakville vineyard sources. Exhibiting rich characteristics of dark complex fruits, minerality and balanced intensity, the layers of this wine truly reflect our vineyards terroir.
The year started with a dry winter leading into a warmer than normal summer. Veraison was slower than usual which delayed fruit thinning. We managed our yields to two tons to the acre. The cooler summer nights kept acidity levels up and the fruit balanced. With smaller berry size and lighter clusters, we achieved great color and concentration.
Blackberry, blueberry and black currant fruit leads to aromas and flavors of huckleberry, gardenia and iris, alongside more savory notes of cedar, sweet pipe tobacco, graphite and anise seed.

Our 2018 Frisson Toucher Vineyards captures the core of this valley floor site. Layers of vibrant cassis, black cherry, and black currant interplay with savory infusions of graphite, sage, tapenade and tobacco that unfold in unwavering strata.
The Frisson Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc is made in a ripe, rich, and forward style. The grapes are harvested later in the season when the tropical notes are at their peak. Fermentation occurs naturally in subtle, water-bent French oak barrels; increasing the perception of sweetness on the nose and adding layers of complexity.
Deep in the heart of Sonoma, the home of our Frisson Reserve Chardonnay. This famed Wente Clone has long been identified as a superior grape capable of producing a wine with intriguing complexity, acid balance, fruit, and long, long finish.
Notes: “Hint of ripe stone fruit lead to a deeper embrace of honeydew and a satisfying edge of limestone tempered with wildflower honey. The palate is full and satisfyingly rich with a long vanilla finish.”
