A fascinating Frank Family classic, the 2014 Rouge is scarlet ruby-colored and opens with attractive aromas of lavender, vanilla bean, and black cherry. A silken, creamy mousse is upheld by fresh acidity-pleasing flavors of spiced cranberry and cardamom fill the palate and round out the lengthy finish. Frank Family Napa Valley Champagne is made in the traditional French method where the secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle. This wine then rested on the spent yeast cells before disgorgement.
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.
