Mission Briefing

Codename:

Barn Burner

Today’s Frisby Cellars 2011 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is the Wine Spies debut for winemaker Josh Frisby. Josh is a very busy dude - on top of handcrafting excellent wines, he spends his “off-hours” putting out literal fires for the Orange County Fire Authority.

Today’s Cab is a lovely blend of a very aromatic nose paired with a more subdued, extracted palate. The rich, bold dark fruit flavors, paired with just the right amount of velvety tannin and acidity, had us planning our summer barbecue. We feel this wine would be an excellent accompaniment to a well-marbled steak, perfectly grilled over charcoal (is your mouth watering yet?!).

We highly recommend this palate pleasing and wallet friendly Cab. Don’t miss out!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Foreboding sanguine with hints of magenta at the center of the glass and a pretty pink ring around the edge.

Smell:

Super fruity and aromatic on the nose, with cherry cordial, blackberry jam, and stewed plum laid overtop cassis, fresh cedar wood shavings, nearly caramelized sugar, and touches of sage and rosemary.

Taste:

Reduced dark fruit of dark plum, black cherry, and boysenberry mingle with subdued earthy tones of sandalwood, espresso bean, dark chocolate, sage, and a hint of black peppercorn.

Finish:

Very elegant and refined, with flavors that coat the mouth, the finish is very well balanced, leaving you with a touch of super dark chocolate at the tip of the tongue.

Pairing:

A perfectly grilled skirt steak, prepared in a marinade of soy sauce, brown sugar, Mexican chili powder, and fresh lime juice.
