2015 Silver Trident "Playing With Fire" Red Napa Valley

$49.95

Founded by travel entrepreneurs Bob Binder & Walter Jost in 2009, Silver Trident is an interesting project in Yountville with a tasting salon designed by Ralph Lauren. Bob Binder was the co-founder of Oceania Cruises, so naturally, Neptune’s trident was a fitting totem for the brand. 

The winemaker here is the very talented Kari Auringer, who has also worked on projects like Scarecrow and Cornerstone. “Playing With Fire” simply refers to the practice of blending Cabernet with both Malbec and Syrah, an unusual blend whose alchemy is somehow perfect. Lovely aromas and flavors of red roses, red cherries, and cocoa dance over a supple, juicy frame. Our notes say “Very difficult to spit out.” You will likely not be similarly constrained.
