Tasting Notes For Frank Family Vineyards Zinfandel 2016
Frank Family’s S&J Vineyard is made up of 206 acres of land located east of the Vaca Mountain Range in Napa’s Capell Valley. Purchased in 2000, it is named for Darryl Frank’s children, Stella and Jeremy, and is planted to 58 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, along with 9 acres of Petite Sirah and 9 acres of Zinfandel. The soils are fertile, well-drained and clay loam-based, reminiscent of the Rutherford Bench. Frank Family’s newest vineyard, Benjamin Vineyard is located east of Conn Creek Road in the heart of Rutherford AVA. This vineyard is comprised of 50 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, 8 acres of Petit Verdot, and 2 acres each of Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The site is anchored by gravelly loam soil as a result of sediment from nearby Conn Creek and Napa Rivers.
A robust, fruit-forward wine with plenty of ripeness, the 2016 Napa Valley Zinfandel offers perfumed aromatics of savory spices and dark coffee. Brambly blackberry, black cherry, and peppery cinnamon intermingle on the full-bodied palate. The right amount of acid and tannin balance out the concentrated palate, leading to a long finish.
