Sandalwood, hazelnut, and powdered cocoa spicy aromas waft around a core of plum and dark stone fruit. Lively black plum and blueberry flavors transition seamlessly to a walnut, toasted almond finish. This elegantly balanced will continue to bring pleasure for years to come.
"This is a blend of the various vineyards Conn Creek has access to. It is a splendid testimony to the winemaker's ability to take disparate lots and make them harmonious. Just a beautiful Cabernet, dry and softly luscious, with complex blackberry, black currant, anise and cedar flavors. A wonderful experience now, and it should develop in the bottle for several years.
Liked it so much I have reordered twice

The Conn Creek '07 Cab delivers what many under $20 Cabs from California lack. It has purity of fruit, with notes of cedar, spice and a touch of herbs. Balanced, complex and well-integrated, this wine tastes as a good Cab should. I was super impressed when we tasted this to feature on the site. $20? Yes, please! We decanted it with dinner, paired it with a steak and enjoyed it immensely.
This is a fine Cabernet that, like many, needs some time to develop. Plenty of fruit and acidity, but will improve on balance over time.
