Conn Creek Anthology 2013, Red Bordeaux Blend, Napa Valley
Our February Wine of the Month, Anthology, is a name apropos to a collection of artistic works from three of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards. Blended of three distinct Bordeaux varietals (93% Cabernet Sauvignon/6% Cabernet Franc/1% Petit Verdot), Conn Creek’s Anthology like a gourmet pantry of spices, each contributes distinct characteristics to the blend, resulting in a wine of generous flavor, with layers of depth and complexity. Wine Director Deanna Brazil loves the lusciousness that the Cabernet Franc brings to the palate and Robert Parker lauds its velvety finish in awarding it 90 points. Through February, Chaz features this lovely wine of the month at $20 per glass, $79 per bottle.
Winemaker Notes: “Dark fruits of cherry, plum and cassis. Spices, chocolate, and almonds wrap around a bright beam of rich fruit. Has the concentration, power and balance to age successfully.” Mike McGrath, Winemaker

Wine Exploration initiative
Chaz has the ultimate wine preservation technology – the Coravin Wine Access System. The new system allows wine to be extracted from a bottle without breaking the seal or allowing oxidation of the wine. Now, wine aficionados may experience top tier wines by the glass.
About the Coravin Wine Access System. The most advanced wine preservation system to date was developed by Greg Lambrecht, an MIT educated nuclear engineer and inventor of medial apparatuses. The system employs a surgical procedure in which a thin, hollow needle is plunged down through the cork, keeping the seal functionally intact. As wine is transferred into the glass, it is replaced with an inert gas (Argon) that prevents the wine from interacting with oxygen. The expandability property of genuine cork allows itself to reseal. The wine can be preserved for months, if not years, and allow the restaurant to serve sampling sizes of exemplary wines without waste.
