In the 1990's, Rich Frank, a long-time Disney executive, started Frank Family Vineyards with the purchase of the former site of the historic Larkmead Winery property in Calistoga. He and his wife Connie had fallen in love with Napa after their numerous weekend trips to the area from Hollywood.
With a dark magenta core and ruby hues around the rim, this wine delivers a delicate scent of red fruit and violets, while hints of sandalwood, sage and pepper. The finesse on the palate reflects an elegant Zinfandel that is well balanced. Juicy black cherry pie and adequate levels of oak marry seamlessly.
