Frank Family Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$54.99

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 2016 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. 90 Points Robert Parker: "Made up of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is very deep garnet-purple in color and displays expressive notions of baked plums, warm cassis and licorice with hints of bay leaves and scorched earth. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with juicy black fruit and earthy sparks, finishing chewy."

Owned by Richard Frank and Koerner Rombauer. Pale lemon with aromas of ripe fruits, citrus & vanilla scents. On the palate complex flavors of crisp apple, melon & lemon, balanced with good acidity & great mouthfeel. Long finish ending with toasty mineral spice. Nice, aging well had this about 6 months ago, consistent quality. A Great Chard.
