2013 Conn Creek Herrick Red  (Napa Valley) 88

Easy drinking, medium-bodied, fruity, dark cherry and licorice filled wine that is meant for early drinking pleasure. At this price point, for a California Cabernet Sauvignon, it represents a fair value. 88 Points

Easy drinking, medium bodied, forward, ripe, sweet, soft, red and black fruits with a hint of oak. This is not a wine to lay down. 88 Points

2010 Conn Creek Cabernet Franc  (Napa Valley) 85

Light in color and fruit, with more herbs, licorice and oak, that fruit. Not a bad wine, but not truly interesting. 85 Points

2010 Conn Creek Anthology  (Napa Valley) 87

Medium bodied, focusing on more red berries than black, with a spicy, crisp finish, this will be best in its youth. 87 Points

1974 Conn Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Family Vineyard  (Napa Valley) 97

Dramatically better than my previous bottle, this was a stunning example of Classic California Cabernet Sauvignon. Purchased from the Joseph Phelps auction, (Which explains its provenance), the wine remains concentrated, deep, rich, fresh and vibrant. Full-bodied, aromatic and elegantly textured, the long finish delivers layers of silky-textured, perfectly ripe, sweet dark red fruits, earth, spice and smoke. If you have a bottle of this gem, consider yourself lucky indeed! 97 Points

A rare treat indeed, even if the fruit is starting to fade, leaving with more tobacco, sweet and tart cherries, earth, cassis and cigar notes, than fruit. Soft textured and holding on by a string, with just enough fruit to hold back the onslaught of acidity that will arrive in a few years, give or take. The wine needs drinking if you are lucky enough to have a bottle. 91 Points
