94pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
Meticulous attention to detail. Estate grown fruit only. Beautiful, sunny Napa Valley terroir. And it's ready to drink now.

Robert Parker, Jr.s Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Reserve is 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petite Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It is a terrific example of Rutherford viticulture, with loads of kirsch liqueur, crème de cassis, dusty, loamy soil undertones, spice box and Christmas fruitcake. It is dense ruby/purple in color and full-bodied, with sweet, supple tannins. Among all the Reserves from Frank Family Vineyards, this seems to be the most precocious and easiest to drink at present. It certainly has 20 years of upside to it. This is a beauty and another impressive offering. Drink date: 2016 - 2036." Dec 2016

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Plush, creamy and inviting, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (Rutherford) is distinguished by its bright red stone fruit, rose petal, cinnamon and mint overtones. Beautifully layered, with striking inner sweetness and volume, the Rutherford Reserve is another highlight in this range. Drinking window: 2020 - 2034." Dec 2016

Winery: "Housed in the historic Larkmead winery in Napa Valley, Frank Family Vineyards produces wines that live up to the heritage of the land on which they are produced. Our wines are handcrafted in small quantities and are only sold at the winery, and in a handful of select restaurants and retailers.

Deep opaque purple in color, the Rutherford Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is an alluring wine, with scents of coffee, cocoa, blackberries and cedar. The wine has a wonderfully velvety texture and length, with added flavors of black licorice, red currants and a hint of cinnamon."
