Winemaker's Notes:

Anthology is crafted for elegance and complexity, combining Bordeaux varieties from some of Napa Valley's finest vineyards. We tasted 20 blends before selecting the final blend for the 1998 Anthology. The 1998 bottling is marked by bright fruit aromas of plum, cherry and cassis and bold flavors of marinated cherry, ripe plum with mocha nuances. This is a silky medium-to-full bodied wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for additional complexity.

About Conn Creek Winery:

Conn Creek was founded in 1973 and immediately established itself as one of Napa Valley's premier Cabernet houses with the release of its 1974 Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery name comes from its location, next to Conn Creek near the Rutherford Crossroad that connects the Silverado Trail with Highway 29. Conn Creek specializes in limited production Bordeaux varietal wines exclusively from Napa Valley’s best vineyards. Present production remains at fewer than 6500 case per year.
