2017 Frank Family Vineyards ‘Carneros’ Pinot Noir ($50.00)- Winemaker Todd Graff has crafted another beautiful wine with this new release Pinot Noir. The wine starts off with good range from orange rind to black tea to black cherry and cola accents on the nose. There is a beautiful texture to this wine that unveils rose water, red cherry candy, pomegranate seed and blood orange flavors. Delicious now, this has a slightly hedonistic bent that makes it nearly impossible to put down right now. This will continue to evolve for the next decade or more. Drink 2019-2029- 93

Lithe and delicate, showing cherry, cinnamon, earl grey tea and earth notes. No need to wait; this is approachable now.
