Item#: 59057

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, October 5, 2022
A fresh and bright pinot with sliced-strawberry, raspberry and orange-peel aromas and flavors. Medium body with fine, racy tannins and a bright and energetic finish. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 4th May 2023
Frank Family’s 2021 Pinot Noir is a blend of several vineyards, built around the same primary sources as the Chardonnay and a short (nine-month) élevage in one-third new French oak. Nicely floral, with cinnamon accents to the cherry fruit, it’s medium-bodied, silky and pleasant, an easy-drinking, fun wine, for drinking young. (Joe Czerwinski)

Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

View more wines from United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

Lovely energy to this with lavender and rose petal with strawberries and raspberries. Slate and stone undertones. Minerality. Seaweed. Medium- to full-bodied with creamy tannins. Fine texture. Fresh at the end. Tension in the finish. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 7/1/2023
A rich mouthfeel and well-ripened fruit flavors give this full-bodied wine a friendly, generous expression, while modest tannins add a touch of grip to balance things out. Accented with an array of oak spices, the wine is easy to love. (Jim Gordon)
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 7, 2023
Friendly and forward in feel, with a rounded core of raspberry and plum puree flavors guided by a light red licorice note through the sandalwood-tinged finish. Drink now through 2025. 7,999 cases made. (James Molesworth)

This Pinot Noir shows integration of a variety of flavors and aromas that create a unique expression. Find notes of red cherry, cranberry, black tea, fresh and dried roses, basil, tarragon, toasted wood, and a desert-dust earthiness. The finish is pleasantly warm. (Stacy Briscoe)

Powerful, with richness to the concentrated salted butterscotch, peach pastry and dried apricot flavors. Delivers details of spices and honeycomb, with elegant, fresh acidity weaving in and out to highlight the flavors. Drink now. 76,000 cases made. (MaryAnn Worobiec)

The 2021 Chardonnay (Carneros) is soft, open-knit and very easy to like. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and white pepper lend vibrancy to this steely, finely-cut Chardonnay from Frank Family. All the elements are very nicely balanced throughout. (Antonio Galloni)
JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, October 5, 2022
A clean and poised chardonnay with nougat, sliced apple and pear and a hint of vanilla. Medium body. Bright acidity. Fun to drink now.
