2009 Conn Creek Herrick Red

Located on Napa Valley’s famed Silverado Trail in the Rutherford district, Conn Creek has built its reputation on its blending expertise, sourcing grapes from nearly all of Napa Valley’s diverse sub-appellations to create wines with layers of depth and complexity. Herrick Red celebrates this tradition with an intriguing blend of classic Bordeaux varieties and a hint of Syrah to spice things up. The result is a rich, flavorful, and satisfying wine.

From the winemaker – “Black Currant, tamarind, dark chocolate, Herbes de Provence and licorice aromas set the background for the full ripe berry and dark plum flavors. The medium bodied tannins provide structure and texture to the juicy, wild blackberry flavors. The finish suggests cocoa powder followed by generous measures of unctuous fruit, cinnamon and sage.”

Best paired with various roast dishes, Spanish stew, mushrooms and grilled meats. Blue fish, rice, short-and medium-cured cheeses.
