Is it bragging if someone else is saying it??       


Thrill of thrills, we have gotten another wonderful review.

This time it’s from the popular wine blog, The Fermented Fruit.  It was so deliciously descriptive, we couldn't wait to pop open a bottle of Frisson Wine!  Thanks for the kind words, Ryan.

Frisson Dutton Ranch Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2013: Produced from one of Sonoma County’s more sought after vineyard sources – Dutton Ranch. Pours a light golden yellow. The nose reveals rich aromas of guava, yellow peach and melon interlaced with sweet cream, subtle vanilla and orange peel nuances. In the mouth it’s medium to full-bodied with bright, generous tropical fruit flavors balanced by just the right amount of zesty acidity to keep things playful. Finishes long, creamy and spicy. Score: 90

Frisson Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2012: Produced from grapes sourced entirely in Napa Valley’s Diamond Mountain AVA, it pours a deep dark ruby red in the glass. The nose is elegant, perfumed and loaded with ripe fruit. Aromas of strawberry, black raspberry, black currant, blackberry and black cherry liqueur are underscored by anise, vanilla and chocolate. In the mouth its soft, supple and opulent in its delivery of ripe strawberry, black cherry and blackberry fruit enveloped in a chocolaty, slightly smoky core. Finishes with moderate length and soft, sweet tannin. Like many of the 2012’s, this is already really approachable. I’d drink now and over the next 5-7 years for optimum enjoyment. Score: 91

It’s time to say a wistful bye-bye to our award-winning 2012 Chardonnay.  Sad to say, since it has mellowed and aged into a thing of beauty, all vanilla and caramel and pineapple, with balanced acidity and delightful mouthfeel.  We think it’s totally deserving of its Gold Medal status, (bragging again?  Shameless...).  Just a few cases are left, and can be yours for free shipping for a short time. Minimum order of six bottles qualifies for this offer. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Spring is on its way to the Valley, and so are we. 

Lots is going on in the winery, and we will be blending and bottling in the next couple of weeks.  Who are we kidding? We simply can’t stand to stay away very long at a time.  The mustard is blooming, and that can be excuse enough to head up the Silverado Trail with the top down.

As always, we’d love to see you when you are visiting the wine country.  Our porch is a fine little place to enjoy a sparkling Napa afternoon.   Not that we’re bragging.
