James Frey (no, not the author – different guy) established Trisaetum in the Ribbon Ridge AVA in 2003. The name is a mashup of the names of his two children: Tristan and Tatum. Today, some 15+ years later, James’ empire has grown to 3 estate vineyards: the original Ribbon Ridge Estate, another in the hills outside of McMinnville he calls the “Coast Range Estate” and a 3rd in the Dundee Hills called Wichmann.
Each Year, James releases a couple wines under the “Artist Series” label which features an image of one of his original paintings on the label. This is the #13 hailing from the 2010 vintage. It has mellowed quite nicely with age, developing a silky, mouthwatering texture and showcasing some very interesting flavors and aromas.
