The 2013 Rutherford Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows a deep and opaque garnet color. On the nose, aromas of briar and blackberry, dark cherry, vanilla, cloves, and leather emerge from the glass. The full-bodied wine envelopes the palate with tannin and flavors of blackberries, cloves, and coffee. The finish is incredibly long. A wine that can be enjoyed now, but will benefit from 5 - 10 years in the cellar.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.

Wine EnthusiastTobacco, earth, sage and pencil notes contribute inviting character to this full-bodied, structured red. Softly layered and rounded on the palate, it offers moderate complexity and a grippy, leathery finish.

Wine SpectatorPure aromas highlight the dusty berry, herb, olive and loamy earth flavors. Solid until the finish, where this gains tannic muscle and grit, losing focus and texture. Drink now through 2030. 1,000 cases made.
