A red wine for fancy burgers

Give it a swirl: Conn Creek Winery's Anthology
Conn creek anthology - best wine for burgers

Conn Creek 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. Anthology is the best wine for burgers.

Wine Pairings

eat Keep your wine night in fancy casual with a sumptuous gourmet burger with fancy toppings like caramelized onions and Gorgonzola cheese 🍴 Aged for 19 months in 100% new French oak (fancy!) gives this wine a smooth, silky finish. The dark fruits and hint of tobacco pair perfectly with a grilled burger. You don’t always need to save the fine wine for steaks!

Give it a swirl

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.

Anthology’s smooth blend is like a classy houndstooth skirt – it compliments almost anything but can be bold on its own. (But mostly, fashionistas love houndstooth + red.)

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.
