Our sparkling wines are sourced from vineyards in Carneros, undergoing a special process that takes about five years from vineyard to consumer. With four styles, Sparkling is the smallest of our collections and can be found in our tasting room, through our web store, as part of our wine club, and by very few select retailers.
Frank Family Sparkling Rosé is made in the traditional French method where the secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle. This wine then rested on the spent yeast cells for two and a half years before disgorgement. The 2014 Brut Rosé comes across as lively yet balanced, with nostalgic, summery flavors of strawberry sorbet, orange peel, and fresh red cherry woven throughout. The abundance of finessed fruit flavors on the nose and on the palate are framed by toasty, creamy nuances.
