2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
"Classic Cabernet notes of cassis and ripe Bing cherry are followed by touches of vanilla, spice cabinet, and a hint of spring rain showers. Vibrant, yet supple, tannins frame the mixed berry flavors while accents of glazed walnuts and fresh tilled loam complement the long finish."

- VINEYARDS: Four vineyards contribute 75% of the fruit for this wine. Collins Holystone Vineyard in the St. Helena AVA, owned by Conn Creek Winery founders Bill and Kathleen Collins, is the largest component at 31%. The vineyard enjoys a warm climate and good drainage leading to consistent early season maturity. The well-known Stagecoach Vineyard in the Atlas Peak appellation in the Vaca Mountains added 18% with Surber Vineyard from Calistoga and Tall Trees from Yountville adding 13% and 12% of the blend respectively. The remaining 25% comes from the Spring Mountain, Rutherford, Carneros, Chiles Valley, Oakville and Oak Knoll AVAs. The combination of the various vineyard sites and their expressions of terroir all make contributions to this complete and complex Cabernet Sauvignon.
