1997 Conn Creek Anthology Napa Valley
|Vineyard:||Conn Creek Winery|
Anthology is a Greek word that refers to a collection of literary or artistic works. It is the inspiration behind Conn Creek’s Anthology, which is made from a collection of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards and diverse AVAs for growing Bordeaux varieties. The AVAs are like a gourmet pantry of spices, each contributes distinct characteristics to the blend, resulting in a wine of generous flavor, with layers of depth and complexity.
Wine.comNose: Classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of plum, cassis and black cherry are enhanced by the addition of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and time in French oak. The resulting collage yields sweet spice, anise, leather, dusty earth, and hints of Grandpa's cedar cigar box. Palate: Rich and luscious, the 97 Anthology is replete with flavors of marinated cherry, blueberry, ripe plum, vanilla, and toasty oak, which linger in the silky finish. This is a medium-to-full bodied vintage that will shine particularly brightly alongside hearty meat dishes and strong cheeses. Alcohol: 14.3%
