Winemaker's Notes:

"The pinnacle wine of Conn Creek, Anthology is an expressive, complex blend of Napa Valley's finest Cabernet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. This blend offers red and black fruit aromas and spicy flavors with nuanced expressions of creamy oak. A robust wine balanced with silky tannins."
-Jeff McBride, Winemaker

Sourced from premier Napa Valley vineyards producing the region's finest Bordeaux varietals:

Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards: Collins, Stagecoach, and Truchard

Cabernet Franc vineyards: Carpenter Merlot vineyards: Collins and Stagecoach

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.
