Sipping Fine Wine

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!

Tasting notes from the Fort Worth Food & Wine Festival...
Already enjoyable at this young age. It was an honor getting to know Frank Family wines tonight.

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