Frank Family Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$49.99

Frank Family is one of the new blue-chip Cabernet producers in Napa Valley. Founded by Rich Frank and Koerner Rombauer, their small-production wines are emerging as some of the most sought after in the valley. Try the fantastic Frank Family Cabernet Sauvignon while it lasts! The 2013 Frank Family Vineyard’s Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exposes its depth immediately with its dense dark purple color. The aromas are bountiful, brimming with juicy brambleberries and ripe black cherries that are laced with notes of smoke and roasted espresso and followed by hints of tobacco, earth and cedar. The palate is opulent and intense, bursting with ripe blackberries and currants, with just a touch of sage.  The rich fruit is balanced with complex tannins providing a plush, yet firm mouthfeel that is round and supple with lasting depth.

Enticing deep ruby color and concentrated aromas of dark fruit and cedar. Nice layers of fruit, blackberry & sweet plum with a slight earthy scent. The wine is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% and 7% Cabernet Franc and aged for 20 months in 30% new French oak. This full bodied wine finished with notes of tobacco and earthy notes, muted oak, was well balanced with solid tannin structure. Delightful! Great value.

A visit from ol reliable while out and about tonight. When Frank Family is on, it's delicious, just like this '13. Drinking really nice at a young age. Epitomizes Napa Cabs currently with bold and fruit driven flavors. A lot of red fruits on the nose like raspberries, but the darker blueberries came through on the tongue. The fruit seems a bit extracted...medium oak presence. This is a crowd pleaser when needing to satisfy a large group. Happiest of New Years to my DL family. 2016 was my first DL year, and it's been a great experience getting to share great wines with y'all. Thank you for your insights...it's been an honor. Cheers to 2017! @Bill Bender @Greg Ballington @TheSkip @Kimberly Anderson @Mike Rowe @Ron R @Martin G Rivard @Jason Oliver @Anthony Lombardi @Edmond Bordelon @Katherine Bordelon @David L @Eric Shanks @Shawn G.

Young, but the elements are there. Nice fruit and oak, velvet tannins.
