International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($95; a Bordeaux blend based on 84% cabernet sauvignon) Bright, deep medium ruby color. 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.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 162

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.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Complex, with a mix of dark chocolate, raspberry and blackberry fruit that's intense and concentrated. Shows some heat, which makes the tannins stand out on the finish. Decant. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. 815 cases made.

Drinking well. Everything has integrated. Goes against most 2003's and is still holding up very nicely!
