Winemaker's Notes:

A dark ruby wine, with plum, cassis and spiced nutmeg aromas. The aromas are complemented by intense chocolate and black fruit flavors. Powerful with ample extraction, the round entry is lush and rich and finishes with a tremendous impression of length.

61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Syrah, 13% Cabernet Franc

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.
