93 points and 'Very highly recommended,' California Grapevine: "[$95 list] Medium-dark ruby; attractive, forward, intense, ripe, black cherry and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of cassis, black olive, sandalwood, tobacco leaf, and espresso; full body; deep, ripe, rounded, concentrated, red and black berry fruit flavors with herbal and mineral notes, good acid balance, well integrated, oak, and a full, rich mouthfeel; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Impressive to taste now, though deserving a good three to five more years of bottle aging. 14.5% alcohol; 2,494 cases; blended with 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot; to be released October 2020. (Sep 2020)"
Producer notes: "Named in honor of Frank Family’s owner and founder Richard Harvey Frank, the second vintage of RHF is a complex and savory wine that comes from our estate vineyards in the heart of the Rutherford appellation. Bold, full bodied and textured it shines in toasted oak, blackberries, and punches of cinnamon and classic Rutherford dust. Dark chocolate lingers around ripe currant and a subtle hint of vanilla on the endless finish."
