Save $35.00 (26%)
Frank Family Vineyards' 2007 Rutherford Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich dark purple color. The aromas are bountiful; leading with ripe blackberries, balsamic grilled figs, and dark chocolate ganache topped with candied almonds. Further richness emerges as savory notes of tea leaves and earthy mushrooms come forward with a hint of cracked pepper beef jerky throughout. The palate is massive yet refined; loaded with the flavors of juicy black cherry and warm blueberry crumble, which are nicely balanced by fresh brewed coffee, cinnamon and clove. Well structured tannins provide a soft inviting entry, silky texture, and outstanding depth that offer roundness from beginning to end, including the delightfully long finish.
Wine EnthusiastTastes austere and aloof now, with the core of black cherry and blackberry fruit cut off by an encircling army of spear-tipped tannins. But very finely structured, dry and classic, just waiting to express its inner beauty. One for the cellar. Give it 6-7 years to begin to come around.
