Our Napa Valley collection sources grapes from our four vineyards, and some from our favorite neighbors, including Beckstoffer, Red Barn, Quarry, and Sangiacomo. Our Napa Valley Cabernet, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir are all aged in French oak barrels, with one-third in new barrels, one-third in once-used barrels, and one-third in twice-used barrels, for balance.
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2019 Napa Valley
This is a quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with pronounced aromas of blackberry, cassis, and vanilla that welcome you into the glass. Flavors of black plums, nutmeg, dark chocolate, and a touch of espresso enhance the wine’s complex and full-bodied structure, with a core of elegant acidity from start to finish.

"A fresh and clean Napa cabernet with blackcurrants and hints of fresh herbs, such as parsley and thyme. Medium-bodied, delicious and bright."
“A big, meaty, and comforting Cab, with classic cassis, herbs, and a hint of boysenberry on the nose and palate joining appealing, toasty notes of spice. Excellent concentration, fresh acidity, structured tannins, and a long finish.”
What we’re looking for in a Cabernet is depth, structure, and balance and I think you’ll see that in this wine.
Our family’s winemaking journey began with Cabernet Sauvignon in 1990 when Rich Frank purchased an old Tudor style house that came with an original 10 acres of hillside vineyards dedicated to this special grape. Our passion for Cabernet Sauvignon has grown over the years, as too has our original estate vineyard, now comprising of 25 planted acres. Today, with three decades of crafting fine wines under out belt, Napa’s most beloved grape is still our first love. We highlight the beauty and complexity of our valley in this appellation-designated wine, a seamless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with a splash of Petite Verdot and Merlot from our estate Benjamin and S&J Vineyards as well as acclaimed Napa Valley grape growers.
