Rutherford Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Frank Family Vineyards
- RegionNapa Valley,
- VarietalCabernet Sauvignon,
Round, rich in fruit and expansive on the palate, the 2016 Rutherford Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon exudes layers of espresso, black fruit, and graphite. Full bodied, it does not hold back in power yet succeeds in finding balance. A well structured finish suggests it has potential to age, in the correct cellar conditions, for years to come. 20 months in 50% new French oak barrels and 50% once-filled French oak barrels
