Owner's Blend Magnum

2016 Rutherford


Offering elegance, complexity, richness, and long-term ageability, the 2016 Owner's Blend is an exemplary representation of the Rutherford vineyards from which it comes from. The inclusion of 16% Cabernet Franc adds beautiful aromas of blackberry blossom and red currants. Balanced and rich in the mouth, its notes of cassis liqueur, dark chocolate, and leather are stunning. The finish is round and refined and will continue to develop and age gracefully in magnum for three decades or more.

"Very elegantly styled with layer upon layer of perfumed fruits and a seamless frame of ripe, plush tannins and background of freshness, finishing very long."

Wine Advocate

"A delicious example of a Napa red that is fantastic right now, but that will continue to evolve in what I predict will be utterly gorgeous ways for the next three decades and beyond…and possibly longer, given its large-format bottling."

The Owner's Blend certainly ranks among our favorite wines we have ever produced throughout our 30 years in Napa Valley and we are incredibly grateful for your continued interest in our labor of love.

Our 2015 Rutherford Reserve Owner's Blend is a wine full of stories…25 years full of stories to be exact. Originally made to celebrate Frank Family's 25th anniversary in the summer of 2018, the second vintage of our Owner’s Blend is back by popular demand. Created in collaboration between proprietors Rich and Leslie Frank and Winemaker Todd Graff, this exquisite Rutherford red wine exudes elegance, power and complexity, with a wealth of rich blackberry and earthy cocoa notes flowing from the glass. Made from 100% Rutherford fruit, we chose grapes for this wine with extreme discernment, allowing for the creation of only 1,000 magnum bottles. Join us in celebrating our milestone year and many amazing years of great winemaking to come by adding one of our commemorative Owner’s Blend Magnums to your collection.
