Frank Family Vineyards Winston Hill Proprietary Red
Description: Tasting Note
by RP 94pts
The 2010 Proprietary Red Blend (87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot) from the Winston Hill AVA represents an homage to the proprietorís pooch. The aromatics include scents of charcoal, graphite, creme de cassis and background oak. Stunningly rich and full-bodied, it is the top wine of this impressive trio. Long, rich, elegant but substantial, this winner can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more.

As rich as this Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend is, and it is extraordinarily rich, thereís something standard about it. Itís as though the ripeness of the fruit has obliterated any trace of terroir. Offers a fantastically sweet explosion of blackberries, cherries, plums and chocolate, alongside caramelized, butterscotchy oak, but beyond the sheer power, the wine isnít displaying much subtlety. Hard to tell where itís going, if anywhere.
