New Vintage Debut: 2015 Patriarch

Since its debut vintage in 2012, the Patriarch has achieved recognition as one of Napa Valley’s greatest Cabernets, most recently appearing on Forbes’ “World’s 30 Best Wines of 2019” list.

We are confident the remarkable 2015 vintage will continue this legacy. Patiently aged for 21 months in French oak, the 2015 Patriarch is a symphony of structure and sophistication, with seamless layers of cassis, spiced plums, leather, and roasted espresso beans.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown of the Wine Advocate awarded the 2015 Patriarch with 95 points stating “it’s expressive with lovely balance, soft acid and velvety tannins, finishing long.”

The historic 2015 vintage was one of the smallest harvests in decades, which led to intensely flavored fruit, but smaller yields. As such, the 2015 vintage of Patriarch was the smallest we ever produced. This limited-production wine hails from our iconic Winston Hill Vineyard in Rutherford, where only the very best Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are hand selected for this 100% varietal wine.

In celebration of the highly anticipated release of our flagship wine, we are excited to offer $10 flat rate 2-day shipping with any Patriarch purchase between now and midnight (PST) on Sunday, June 9. If you would like to secure your allotment of Patriarch but wish to hold your shipment until transit temperatures drop in the Fall, please call Jennifer Higgins at 707-942-2314. 

“We affectionately dedicated this special wine to honor a great-grandfather, grandfather, and my father, a true American Patriot and our Patriarch, Hy Frank. This wine is bold, strong in character and long-lasting, much like my dad.” – Rich Frank
