Anthology is a blend of Cabernets from 14 different vineyards. 14! That’s like mixing houndstooth with zebra print, wide stripes, a bold floral, ikat, herringbone, ombré, chinoiserie, monochrome cheetah pattern, tiny polka dots, botanicals, solid, Greek Key, and buffalo check. Only a seasoned designer with impeccable taste could blend all of those patterns and pull it off.

Conn Creek Winery’s Anthology is a masterful blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon spiced up with Cab Franc and Petit Verdot.
Great. So what does that mean? Like a spice rack, different grapes can be used to blend a wine – something my husband and I learned at the Barrel Blending Experience at Conn Creek Winery a few years ago in Napa Valley. We blended our own bespoke bottles from the same grapes used in this wine.
You’ll pay More than $50. The kind of expertise and experimenting to perfect a masterpiece wine like Anthology does come with a price tag… so best to reserve it for a special occasion, unless your budget for everyday wines exceeds $50.
Anthology will also cellar well – meaning you can keep it around in a pretty wine rack for at least a decade.
