Our family reserves the Conway label for exceptional barrels in our cellar that have been hand-selected to offer the utmost in quality, character and agebility. Our first vintage of Conway was created in 2009, in honor of our father, Christopher Conway, who has maintained a passion for California Cabernet Sauvignon throughout his lifetime.
The first vintage of Conway was reserved for three Napa Valley Cabernets from highly regarded vineyard sources in the Rutherford, Atlas Peak, and Napa Valley AVAs. For subsequent vintages we sourced grapes closer to home, in the Happy Canyon, in Santa Barbara County. We have since determined that Santa Barbara is where we will continue to source grapes for the Conway label, since we believe whoheartedly in the future and quality of this region. We are proud to produce Santa Barbara wines under our namesake label with grapes from Santa Ynez, Sta. Rita Hills, the Santa Maria Valley, and the Happy Canyon.
The 2013 Conway Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills is the perfect example of how beautiful, restrained, and refined California Pinot Noir can be. A small production of 900 cases produced.Elegant and fragrant, the first sip pulls you into a seamless balance of strawberry and black cherry flavors. Polished, precise, and pure fruit flavors emerge from the glass. Restrained yet complete, from start to finish.
Our inaugural vintage of Conway Santa Barbara County Cabernet Sauvignon offers enticing aromas of Blackberry, Cassis, Vanilla, and sweet floral notes.
Luscious, rich, and fruit-forward, the effects we attribute to the use of the puncheons are defined by precise fruit flavors supported by the perfect amount of toasty oak notes from start to finish. Notes of ripe cherry, red currant, smoke and leather with a hint of strawberry and cedar hit the palate with a fresh and refined quality. Designed to age, this wine will continue to show beautifully for years to come. Limited production of 267 cases.
