Frivolous, as a Marsannay rosé, is pure Pinot Noir, from our Russian River valley vineyards.
Frivolous can be served throughout the meal, with summer barbecues and mixed salads, paella, cured meats, white meats, crab and red fish as well as highly-spiced foods. Try with paella, baked salmon, grilled vegetable skewers, or a variety of soft cheeses.
If you keep one for a few years try it with a dessert – heaven! This is a genuine dinner-time rosé.
