Conn Creek "Anthology" Napa Red 2006

The wine is graceful, yet powerful, with seemingly endless berry and spice flavors on the finish. 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 7% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot
External Reviews for Conn Creek "Anthology" Napa Red
A beautiful, succulent young Cabernet-based Bordeaux blend that delivers plenty of flavor. It's front-loaded with blackberries, cherries, currants and chocolate. Delicious now, but it's a little too soft for the cellar. - S.H. The dark ruby/purple-hued 2006 Anthology, a Bordeaux varietal blend , exhibits austerity, elegance, and a compact, somewhat monolithic personality.
Absolutely delicious, a fat, sumptuous wine that flatters the palate from beginning to end. Smells plush, brimming with currants and fancy oak trimmings, and turns lush and complex with fruit in the mouth. Best to drink it soon, in the fullness of youth.
Exquisitely balanced, with ripe, rich, polished blackberry, black cherry and plummy flavors. Maintains a sense of elegance and grace, finishing with supple, fine-grain tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2010.
Appealing for its supple texture and bright, forward flavors mdash; layers of juicy cherry, currant, plum, and berry. Finishes with a spicy anise aftertaste and notes of tar, herb and cedary oak. Drinkable now if you look past its supple tannins, or age it into 1998 to 2002; it should only get more harmonious.
The 2006 Anthology is rich, smooth and spicy, a delicious wine. Mature cherry flavors and concentrated cassis fruits are brought to focus with cedar, and vanillin spiced accents. Graceful and powerful
Firm and tannic but the ripe fruit flavors are pretty with plum, wildberry, and cherry notes filling out the sage and spice notes. Has the tannins to age into 1999.
A plush and generous Napa red, this is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (52 percent) with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Itrsquo;s filled with deep, dark savory fruit, a solidly build wine with the sort of mouthwatering Cabernet flavors that complement and complete the flavors of a lamb chop. Satisfying and ready to drink.
