Conn Creek is a boutique winery on the Silverado Trail in the Rutherford district. For
nearly 40 years, the winery has focused on Cabernet Sauvignon. Our flagship wine – Anthology – is named for a Greek word that refers to a collection of literary or
artistic works and it aptly describes our approach to crafting this wine. We source
fruit from a collection of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards and diverse AVAs for growing
Cabernet Sauvignon. The AVAs are like a gourmet pantry of spices: each one contributes distinct characteristics to the blend, resulting in a wine of generous flavors with layers of depth and complexity.
Tasting notes: “Mixed red and black fruits with toasted baking spices and light floral accents. The blend of fruits carry
into the palate and add notes of anise and cardamom.” — Mike McGrath, Winemaker
Vineyards & vintage: 2014 was the earliest vintage in many years. Spring arrived early and kick-started vine growth resulting in an advanced harvest timetable. Moderate to warm temperatures throughout the growing season encouraged steady, even ripening and permitted picking at the peak of flavor development.
Sourcing grapes from nearly all of Napa Valley’s appellations provides us with many alternatives when it comes to crafting our flagship wine.
Cabernet Sauvignon forms the backbone of the blend in 2014 and shows its typical structure and length. Cabernet Franc is the next largest component and adds aromatic grace and floral notes. Malbec contributes a sense of juiciness with extra depth of color from Petit Verdot.
