Frank Family Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Patriarch Winston Hill Vineyard 2016

$225

Juicy and open up front, though there's weight as well to the core of cassis, cherry purée and steeped plum notes. Light red licorice, sweet toast and tobacco score the finish, which still has a bit of grip to shed, so your choice to drink or hold a bit. Drink now through 2030. 456 cases made.
