ABOUT THE WINERY:

First constructed as the Larkmead Winery in 1884, the building was refinished with native sandstone from the nearby hills in 1906 and still stands tall today. Owner Richard Frank produces Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Sangiovese and several distinctly different Cabernet Sauvignons from various sites. The Zinfandel comes from the Brown Vineyards in the Chiles Valley while their Napa Carneros Vineyards produce some of the finest Chardonnay available.

TASTING NOTES:

This beautifully balanced and deeply concentrated Zinfandel boasts elegant, complex layers of crushed clove, fresh blackberry, and creamy mocha on the nose. A velvety texture of fine- grained tannins provides structural weight to the ripe fruit flavors of plum compote as well as violet, thyme, and black pepper.

WINEMAKER NOTES:

Frank Family is passionate about California’s heritage grape, Zinfandel. A notorious uneven ripener, it is difficult to grow in certain years, but 2019 brought generous sun and a long growing season which provided our grapes ideal conditions to ripen fully.

AGING:

16 months in 33% new French oak barrels, and 67% once and twice-filled French oak barrels.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Somm Journal:
Fragrant earthiness lies beneath rich black cherry and plum flavors in this full-bodied, deep-colored wine. Mocha, cardamom, and baked cherry enhance the wine’s refreshing acidity and powerful tannins find harmony on the lingering finish.
