RATINGS

95Jeb Dunnuck

It's a classic wine that's packed with notions of blackcurrants, scorched earth, tobacco leaf and roasted herbs. Rich, full-bodied and concentrated...

94+ The Wine Advocate

Full-bodied and full-on savory in the mouth, it has chewy tannins and a meaty/peppery finish.

94Vinous / IWC

Super-ripe dark red cherry, plum, spice, menthol and wild flowers are nicely pushed forward.

PRODUCER

Anderson's Conn Valley

Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards was founded in 1983 by Gus Anderson and his son Todd. The 28-acre estate is in Conn Valley, a small valley east of Napa Valley. The estate makes Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. California wine writer James Laube has written that the “estate specializes in complex and sumptuous Cabernets…Legally, Conn Valley is part of the larger Napa Valley appellation, but this is a distinctive vineyard yielding distinctive wines.”

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley

Napa Valley AVA is the most famous winemaking region in the United States and one of the most prestigious in the world. With nearly 43,000 acres of vineyards and more than 300 wineries, it is the heart of fine wine production in the United States. Winemaking started in Napa in 1838 when George C. Yount planted grapes and began producing wine commercially. Other winemaking pioneers followed in the late 19th century, including the founders of Charles Krug, Schramsberg, Inglenook and Beaulieu Vineyards. An infestation of phylloxera, an insect that attacks vine roots, and the onset of Prohibition nearly wiped out the nascent Napa wine industry in the early 20th century. But by the late 1950s and early 1960s Robert Mondavi and other visionaries were producing quality wines easily distinguishable from the mass-produced jug wines made in California’s Central Valley. Napa Valley’s AVA was established in 1983, and today there are 16 sub-appellations within the Napa Valley AVA. Many grapes grow well in Napa’s Mediterranean climate, but the region is best known for Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay is also very successfully cultivated, and about 30% of the AVA’s acreage is planted to white grapes, with the majority of those grapes being Chardonnay,

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
