(94 points) It's the rare Napa Cab that drinks beautifully both on release and through a decade or more - this is one of them: decadently plush and juicy, with lifted floral aromas and smooth, seamless tannins. It sports great verve and polish, with oak, ripeness, acidity and alcohol all in balance.

The inky/purple-hued 2003 Proprietary Red Wine a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Merlot and the rest tiny portions of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc reveals copious notes of chocolate along with hints of melted tar charcoal black cherries and currants. Full-bodied dense and well-balanced it should drink well for 10-15 years. Interestingly Paul Frank continues to sell much of his production to such high quality wineries as Pahlmeyer. He will undoubtedly do more and more estate bottling as his vineyard ages.(Release date Fall 06)Tel. (707) 944-0944; Fax (707) 945-0235

Black cherry, cassis, bitter chocolate and mocha on the slightly medicinal, primary nose. Then juicy, spicy and bright, with cooler, high-pitched flavors of black cherry, spices and flowers. Less lush and porty than the 2002 version but fresher and more elegant. Finishes with good sweet tannins and very good length. -- Stephen Tanzer
