"This wine is a blend of several great Napa sites. The S&J Vineyard is made up of 206 acres of land located east of the Vaca Mountain range in Napa’s Capell ValleyAcquired in 2000, it is named for Rich Frank’s grandchildren. The soils are fertile and reminiscent of Rutherford Bench. The Benjamin vineyard is located east of Conn Creek Road in the heart of the Rutherford AVA. Acquired by Frank Family in 2012, the 87-acre parcel, formerly known as Wood Ranch, was renamed for Rich Frank’s grandson Benjamin. The vineyard is composed of gravelly loam soil as a result of sediment from the Conn Creek and Napa River which flowed through the region thousands of years ago. Additional vineyard sources include Round Pond Estate in Rutherford, Delouis, and Shooting Star Vineyards located in Napa Valley." Frank Family Vineyards
