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 is a boutique winery on the Silverado Trail in the Rutherford district. For 40 years, the winery has focused on Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-styled wines. In search of the best Cabernet Sauvignon, we've discovered many exceptional single-vineyard sites throughout Napa Valley.

Today, Conn Creek sources fruit from prized vineyards in nearly all of Napa Valley's 15 renowned sub-appellations to provide winemaker Mike McGrath with an unparalleled palette from which to blend each wine. It's an approach that captures the "Best of Napa Valley."
