K&L Notes

The 2007 Frank Family Vineyard’s Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep purple color. The aromas are brimming with sweet blackberries, Tahitian vanilla, chocolate-dusted espresso beans and spiced cake with raspberry coulis. As further layers emerge, notes of aniseed, sage browned butter and cigar box come forward. The palate is profuse and lively bursting with juicy cherries, blackberry pie topped with cardamom ice cream and fresh-brewed coffee with a touch of cinnamon. These classic aromas are harmoniously balanced by a well structured mouthfeel of velvety tannins that are wonderfully polished yet youthful with lasting grip.

    For years Frank Family has been pumping out some of the richest wines in Napa Valley from their historic winery, formerly known as the Larkmead Winery, which was built in 1884. From their texture driven Chardonnay to their jammy, bombastic Zinfandel to their supple, yet power-laden Cabernet they rarely miss. The 2007 vintage gave them fantastic raw materials to work with, and they surely made an amazing Cab. Blending in 9% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, this bottling is truly delicious and easily ready to drink right away as well as being appropriate for the cellar over the next 5-6 years. Bold aromatics of blackberry, olive tapanade, 72% cocoa and toffee blend wonderfully to create an at once fruit forward but serious amalgamation. Backed by a continuation of ripe fruit on the palate leaning towards dominating flavors of currant and black olive while retaining one of the smoothest textures in a Cab I’ve seen in months. Sandalwood, cinnamon, sage and confectionary flavors flow freely in the long and rewarding finish. This is, simply put, a Cabernet that is hard not to enjoy immensely.
