Conn Creek 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
For this Napa Valley Cab fruit from the Collins Holystone Vineyard in the St. Helena AVA, owned by Conn Creek Winery founders Bill and Kathleen Collins, forms the heart of this 2010 blend. The vineyard enjoys a warm climate, and is a consistent early-ripening site. Long days of temperate weather during harvest created flavor complexity and full maturity in the vineyard’s small berries. The remainder of the blend is comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from appellations within the broader Napa Valley, including Stag’s Leap District, Mt. Veeder, Atlas Peak, Spring Mountain, Yountville, Rutherford and Oakville. The Wine Advocate said "Displays a healthy dark ruby/purple color in addition to ripe, soft, consumer-friendly flavors of black currants, plums and licorice. This seductive Cabernet is meant to be consumed over the next 7-8 years, although I would not be surprised to see it last longer." And Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "Rich and ripe, with Cabernet fruit swamping the mouth with jammy blackberries, cherries, currants and chocolate. As fruity as it is, it’s well structured, with firm tannins and a fine edge of acidity. Beautiful to drink now, but give it some breathing time after opening, or decant."

    Comments about Conn Creek 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley:

    Beautifully balanced and structured from start to finish. Black cherry, cassis, vanilla and minty notes on the nose transcend to similar flavors mixing in some coffee and chocolate nuances. The tannins are still fairly firm so this could use a little time, but if you like your Cabs big and forward, drink up!
