Winemaker Notes

Black Currant, tamarind, dark chocolate, Herbes de Provence and licorice aromas set the background for the full ripe berry and dark plum flavors. The medium bodied tannins provide structure and texture to the juicy, wild blackberry flavors. The finish suggests cocoa powder followed by generous measures of unctuous fruit, cinnamon and sage.

Pair with grilled skirt steak with caramelized onion relish, or Argentine-style beef empanadas.

Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Syrah, 8% Malbec, 2% Merlot, 2% Primitivo

Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Made from Bordeaux varieties and Syrah, this is marked by powerful fruit flavors and some degree of sophistication. It floods the mouth with extracted blackberry, cherry, currant and Canadian bacon notes, with a dash of black pepper. Drink it over the next year or two. It should be relatively easy to find, with 10,000 cases produced.

Conn Creek
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."

Portugal

View all wine

Best known for flavorful fortified wines but also producing excellent dry wines, Portugal is unique in that it relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to the west on the Iberian Peninsula, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, perhaps due in part to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. Portugal is a long and narrow country, which makes for considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast. With the exception of Port, most Portuguese wines have struggled to garner attention in the international marketplace, perhaps due to the unfamiliar and difficult to pronounce nature of most of its grape varieties and terminology, which means that there are many excellent values to be discovered here by the adventurous consumer. The country is perhaps better known for being the world’s leader in cork production than for its wine.

Port, made in the Douro Valley, is the fortified wine for which Portugal is most famous. The same region also produces full-bodied dry wines made from the same set of grape varieties, which include Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo). The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast. Other dry wines of the mainland include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde of the north, the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão, and the bold, jammy reds of the Alentejo.
