The 2016 Frank Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is sumptuous and seductive in structure and complexity, and seamlessly woven in black cherry and cocoa. The palate offers flavors of hazelnut, baked plum, and cloves while brilliant acidity on the finish balances the concentration of flavors and tannins.

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"Made up of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is very deep garnet-purple in color and displays expressive notions of baked plums, warm cassis and licorice with hints of bay leaves and scorched earth. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with juicy black fruit and earthy sparks, finishing chewy." -LPB, 10/29/18
