Frank Family Pinot Noir 2014
The 2014 Carneros Pinot Noir is light ruby red in the glass. This has an earthy nose, with notes that pop with aromas of baking spices, especially cinnamon. The palate offers bright, fresh flavors of Rainier cherries and vanilla, and a round mouthfeel.
Wine EnthusiastOffering a strong opening aroma of pine resin, this wine feels crisp and crunchy on the palate, with cranberry, pomegranate and red cherry flavors. Both complex and varietal, it has a tannic backbone of power and ripeness beneath its fruit, accented with black tea.
Wine SpectatorMore solid than exciting, with a mix of earthy cherry and wild berry flavors, joined by charry oak and a touch of stemmy, oaky bitterness that detracts. Drink now. 5,000 cases made.
