Owned by Rich and Connie Frank, Rich Frank is a former Disney exec who relishes his role as a Napa Valley vintner, and produces wines of high quality and complex character.The Frank Family winery was first constructed in 1884, part of the Larkmead winery. The beautiful stone building was refinished with native sandstone from the nearby hills in 1906 and today, is on the National Register of Historical Places and listed as a Point of Historical Interest in the state of California. Frank Family produces distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Pinot Noir and Petite Syrah.

The Frank Family Rutherford Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from a few prime vineyards in the Rutherford AVA. Rich Frank’s Winston Hill is located in the eastern side of the Napa Valley’s Rutherford appellation along the Vaca Mountain range; the hand-terraced vine rows have southwestern exposure and consist of well-drained volcanic and sandstone soils that rise nearly 500 feet from the valley floor. Rich Frank’s Benjamin Ranch is right across the Silverado Trail from Winston Hill. The ranch spans 87 acres with 70 acres planted with vines. The Benjamin Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon adds depth and the classic “Rutherford dust” character to the Rutherford Reserve. A handful of their closest neighboring vineyards are chosen to finish out the blend.

Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve reveals a more opaque blue/purple color in addition to gorgeous aromas of spring flowers, blueberries, boysenberries, and hints of licorice and background oak. It cuts a broader, richer, full-bodied swath across the palate with no hard edges. Full and layered, this seamless beauty is further evidence of just how great as well as consistent the 2007 vintage is for this varietal in Napa Valley. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.
