Wineboy rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

pure cassis characteristics here with obvious vanilla and oak accents. Power, smoothness and a touch more dryness than some Cali CSs. Exactly my style, but is is yours.. only one way to know...




Natalie's Review

Frank Family Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Napa Valley, California, United States: The 2014 vintage of this Californian Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa's Frank Family has lots of black fruit and anise aromas. Since founding the winery in 1992, the family has owned and operated the estate which now has 450 acres of vineyards. Winemaker Todd Graff creates the wines in a 19th century stone winery that's listed on the Register of National Historic Places and is surrounded by elm trees. A full-bodied red wine with aromas of cassis and black currant. Good acidity on the palate for tangy sauces. Pair with chili con carne. Drink: 2018-2024. 246900 14.50% XD 750 mL  $65.95 Score: 91/100. July 7, 2018 Top Rated Red Wine. Harmonious Hard Cheese Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
