Winemaker's Notes

This is Conn Creek's inaugural vintage of Cabernet Franc. Like all Conn Creek wines, it is crafted in a bold style that reflects the intense rich character of classic Napa Valley vineyards. Plum, cherry aromas tinged with dried spice, white pepper and green olive notes give way to a structured, complex wine with dark stone fruit flavors and a lingering finish.

"Showcases this varietal's sweetly limpid, berry side. Raspberry liqueur flavors are rich and long on the palate, accompanied by crisp acids and the heat of alcohol. Delicious from the soft texture through the full-bodied, ripe finish."

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.
