Headed up by a wine geek from Hollywood and winemaker Koerner Rombauer, Frank Family Vineyards has won my heart. I haven’t had a disappointing bottle yet. Their cab is elegance embodied. Tootsie roll flavors, laced with caramel, vanilla and honeysuckle … backed up with white pepper, blackberry and a slight smokiness. 5 stars out of 5. Sweetness=1 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $55.
