In 1884 the property was home to Larkmead Winery and from 1958-1992, home to Kornell Champagne Cellars. The original building is on the National Register of Historical Places. The winery was completely remodeled in 2007. The winemaker and general manager is Todd Graff.

The 20 acre Winston Hill Vineyard, located on the east side of the Napa Valley’s Rutherford appellation along the Vaca Mountain range, is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, but small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Sangiovese are also grown. The soil consists of well-draining, volcanic deposits and sandstone. The 138 acre Lewis Vineyard is located in Napa, Carneros and is planted on shallow, but dense clay loam soils. Chardonnay Dijon clones thrives here. Cabernet Sauvignon, along with small quantities of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel are grown in the 75 acre S&J Vineyard which is located in Napa’s Capell Valley. The vineyard is planted on fertile, well-draining, clay loam-based soil, reminiscent of the Rutherford Bench. The wines are produced with sustainably farmed estate fruit, but occasionally additional fruit is sourced from high-quality grape growers. Benjamin Vineyard is Frank Family’s newest vineyard in Rutherford. It was formerly the Wood Ranch Vineyard and is planted to mosty Old vine cab. The former owners (the Wood family) sold the fruit to Caymus, the fruit now goes into FFV Napa Cab and Rutherford Reserve. Frank Family Vineyards was named 2012 Winery by the Year from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines.

Tasting

A beautiful wine from a near-perfect vintage, this robust Cabernet Sauvignon shows balance and complexity - a blend of dark berry, forest, clove, and nutmeg. The tannins and French oak are well integrated on the palate and elegant from start to finish.
