A blend of 91% Cab Sauv, 4% Petite Verdot, 3% Cab Franc & 2% Merlot, deep Ruby with aromas of complex fruit, oak & floral spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry & cherry with currant and cacao adding cedar and espresso notes. Soft tannins with a young edge, long finish, well integrated, nicely balanced, a joy to drink. Will age a long time. Wait! A Wow factor wine!! Outstanding!

Smoke, tobacco, pyrazene, medicinal and herbal characters, tart to fresh currants and cassis on the nose. Great acidity coupled with smooth tannins.

Owned by Richard Frank and Koerner Rombauer. Got a taste via Corvin. A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot, aged for almost 2 years in French oak (50%new) with aromas of dark berry fruits, sweet spice and cedar. Flavors of blackberry and cherry, pure velvet, with vanilla, oak and leather notes. Dusty tannins on lingering finish ending with espresso tones. Has room to age. Tasting Sample.

Fat and fruity up front with earth, dust, graphite, and chewy tannins on the finish.

Beautiful, full-bodied reserve cab from Frank Family. This is quite a big step up from their regular cab. Despite a somewhat restrained nose, lovely fruit and tropical flavors on the palette. Solid structure. A Bordeaux-like Napa cab.

Classic Napa, red and black fruit. High alcohol, sweet berries.
