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 2013 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is made of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Aged in 67% two year old French oak barrels and 33% in new French oak, this wine has the perfect balance of fruit, oak and tannins. This excellent Napa Cab was one of the highlights during our last trip to the Napa Valley. 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.

Wine AdvocateA beautiful elegance can be found in the 2013 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot aged 20 months in one-third new French oak. This is a good value for a Napa Cabernet. The color is a healthy dark ruby purple, the wine offers up beautiful blueberry and black raspberry fruit and is suggestive of a high-class Pomerol. The oak is pushed way to the background and the wine is medium to full-bodied with supple tannins and a long finish. Drinkable now, it should continue to evolve gracefully and hopefully even improve over the next 10 to 15 years.
