Our Napa Valley collection sources grapes from our four vineyards, and some from our favorite neighbors, including Beckstoffer, Red Barn, Quarry, and Sangiacomo. Our Napa Valley Cabernet, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir are all aged in French oak barrels, with one-third in new barrels, one-third in once-used barrels, and one-third in twice-used barrels, for balance.
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2021 Napa Valley
This beautifully complex and classically styled wine is perfumed with aromas of sweet blackberries, violets, and vanilla that guide espresso, nutmeg, and cedar flavors on the palate. Silky tannins and ample, fresh acidity support the complex flavors, lending elegance to the long, expressive finish.

"The most widely available Frank Family cab is firm and structured in this drought vintage, wrapping moderate to full tannins around a mix of bright red cherries, black cherries, mint and cassis accents."
What we’re looking for in a Cabernet is depth, structure, and balance and I think you’ll see that in this wine.
Our family’s winemaking journey began with Cabernet Sauvignon in 1990 when Rich Frank purchased an old Tudor style house that came with an original 10 acres of hillside vineyards dedicated to this special grape. Our passion for Cabernet Sauvignon has grown over the years, as too has our original estate vineyard, now comprising of 25 planted acres. Today, with three decades of crafting fine wines under out belt, Napa’s most beloved grape is still our first love. We highlight the beauty and complexity of our valley in this appellation-designated wine, a seamless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with a splash of Petite Verdot and Merlot from our estate Benjamin and S&J Vineyards as well as acclaimed Napa Valley grape growers.
