Brief

My goodness, a whopping $60 OFF single-vineyard Yountville Cabernet? I’ll take it! ONLY 24 CASES (I bought the other!) TO SELL! Like about everyone else who has come to Napa Valley, Terry Davis dreamed for years about becoming a part of the Napa Valley world of wine. Dreams have a way of becoming a reality. One beautiful night at a garden dinner party he met Wayne Donaldson, winemaker. During their conversation, Terry told him of his desire to make a great Cabernet. On the way out that night, Terry’s new best friend said if he came across the right grapes, he would give him a call. Next thing Terry knew, he and some friends had bought three tons of Diamond Mountain grapes. Today, they source from all over the Napa Valley, making distinct single-vineyard bottlings to much acclaim. Dark and masculine, this Cabernet packs in the old school cassis, leather, roasting coffee beans, vanilla bean and cocoa. A good one to age, too, it will only get better. Fun fact: Frisson is a French word meaning a moment of intense excitement, a thrill. It’s a thrill to pay $39.95, too, are we right?
