Review: 2016 Frank Family Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel

Two new releases from our friends at Frank Family Vineyards in Napa Valley…

2016 Frank Family Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley – Put simply, wines like this are why people like Napa Cabernet. Lush berries and powerful spice notes give the wine an instant likability, with silky chocolate and some cinnamon dripping in as the palate evolves. A lovely blackberry note endures on the finish — covered with milk chocolate, naturally. A / $50 [BUY IT NOW FROM TOTAL WINE]

2016 Frank Family Zinfandel Napa Valley – A classic, unctuous zinfandel, lush with blackberry jam, mint chocolate, and a spray of spices. The flavors are on target, but the whole affair is a bit blunt with sweetness as the finish develops, and the wine eventually starts to become cloying. B- / $30 [BUY IT NOW FROM TOTAL WINE]
