Conn Creek 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Conn Creek is a boutique winery on the Silverado Trail in the Rutherford district, best known for their flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, Anthology. In search of the best grapes to create this wine, they discovered many exceptional single-vineyard sites throughout Napa Valley. Today, Conn Creek sources fruit from prized vineyards in nearly all of Napa Valley’s diverse 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.” This 2012 is a prime example. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced 40% from Collins Holystone Vineyard, just north of St. Helena and owned by Conn Creek Winery founders Bill and Kathleen Collins. Another substantial portion at 23% is from the well-known Stagecoach Vineyard on Atlas Peak. Surber Vineyard in Calistoga adds 7% and the Conn Creek Estate Vineyard in Rutherford, 5%. The balance is distributed among Yountville, Oakville, Oak Knoll, Mt. Veeder, Chiles Valley, Howell Mt., and Diamond Mt. appellations. The combination of the various vineyard sites and their expressions of terroir all make contributions to this complete and complex Cabernet Sauvignon. Each vineyard lot was fermented separately. The wine was aged 19 months in 30% new French oak. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "Dusty waves of milk chocolate sway over blackberry and black currant in this tightly woven wine, its tannins still thick and richly layered and the oak tight. Let it open a bit in the glass to let the rougher edges soften before enjoying."
