NOW AVAILABLE IN CERTAIN AREAS OF THE UNITED STATES
2016 CHARDONNAY NAPA VALLEY
“Both the 2014 and 2015 received 90-point scores from Robert Parker and Antonio Galloni. The 2016 is no different in its makeup. “The nose is restrained and pretty, showing Jasmine and green tea, fresh cream butter, Bartlett pears, white flowers and lemongrass aromas. It is middle-weight, elegant and long with flavors of Granny Smith apple, red apple skin, lemon curd and marmalade. There is a touch of oak and a wisp of vanilla too. The finish is clean and fresh.” – notes from the winery.
2017 SAUVIGNON BLANC/SEMILLON
“Coming soon. This will be our first Sauvignon and Semillon blend. The grapes were grown in the Yountville appellation, not far from here. It’s hard to say where this is going to be when we release it but we like where the young wine is now. It’s recently finished fermentation and been moved to neutral barrels. We should have this wine available early to mid 2018.”
2015 PINOT NOIR NAPA VALLEY
“Our love of great burgundy informs a lot of what we do here, and this Pinot Noir is produced in that vein. There’s no denying however that this was grown and produced in Napa Valley. It is a bigger style, bold and full flavored. There’s deep, dark chocolate covered cherry flavors, some cola notes, and a touch of new oak. It had a vibrant acidity and long flavors, and a nice finish. The earthy, forest-y notes keep it complex and compelling.” – notes form the winery.
2015 CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY
“A new product for us is this first ever ‘non-reserve’ Cabernet. It is a fruit forward, friendly, easy to drink style of Cabernet produced from the barrels that don’t quite make the cut for the Reserve and Eloge bottlings. What you may enjoy though is knowing that this is an estate grown, estate bottled Conn Valley Cabernet for HALF what you’d normally have to pay…worth a try! This wine is hard to find right now as it has only just been released, but we’d be happy to sell you some if you give us a call.”
2014 “RIGHT BANK” NAPA VALLEY
“The 2014 Right Bank is brisk, finely cut and savory, which is to say very much in the style of the year. Today, the new oak is a bit prominent, which hints at the wine’s mid-weight personality. Still, there is plenty to like. Dark cherry, plum, herbs, mint, new leather and a kiss of French oak are among the signatures. The lifted, savory finish is quite attractive. In 2014, the Cabernet Franc is bumped up to about 75% of the blend, which is where it is likely to remain going forward. Although the 2014 is a touch slender, it is very nicely done. 91pts” Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Dec. 2016
2015 “RIGHT BANK” NAPA VALLEY
“(57% Cabernet Franc, 42% Merlot) Dark cherry, tar, and violets open up to earthy green tea and floral cardamom notes. Dense cherry and black fruit lifted by fresh acidity. The texture of the wine evolves over time in the glass gaining a plush center with opulent flavors of exotic spices. The tannins are polished and should allow this Right Bank to gain complexity and depth in the bottle as well as marking it as one of the finest examples of this wine produced by Anderson’s Conn Valley.” – notes from winemaker Robert Hunt.
2014 “ELOGE” NAPA VALLEY
“The 2014 Eloge is plump, super-ripe and forward, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking over the medium term. Smoke, graphite, mineral and intensely savory notes build into the expressive finish. Today, the 2014 comes across as a smaller-scaled version of the 2013, and that is not at all a bad thing. This is a terrific example of the year. 92+pts” – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Dec. 2016
2014 “ESTATE RESERVE” CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY
“The flagship wine is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve, coming from their vineyards tucked away in the under the radar sector known as Conn Valley. It is a beautiful example of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Dense purple with gorgeous, young, but promising nose of blackberry and cassis, licorice, forest floor and earth, the wine hits the palate with a supple, ripe integrated tannic framework, intense black fruits, full body and a long finish. This is a stunner and another great example from Todd Anderson’s vineyard that first produced Cabernet Sauvignon in 1987 and is coming up on its 30th anniversary next year. This wine, given the track record of Anderson Conn Valley wines to age, has a good 25-30 years of life in it, although it is certainly approachable already because of the characteristics of 2014. 95pts.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, Dec. 30, 2016.
NOW AVAILABLE AT THE WINERY ONLY – PLEASE PLAN A VISIT SOON
2014 “SIGNATURE” CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY
“A rare and stunning wine produced from only a handful of specially selected barrels. Of the nearly 100 barrels of Cabernet we produce each year, only eight ever become the Signature. This is a wine with its own following already, and is produced with no expense spared specifically for our club members. If you visit us, please ask for a taste of this remarkable wine. It is highly aromatic and intense, thick and dense on the palate and incredibly long. This is a very particular type of wine that lovers of the boldest styles of Napa Cabs will enjoy most.”
2015’s ARE ALL NEW FROM ANDERSON CONN VALLEY
“We are especially proud of the 2015 vintage releases, and we don’t say that lightly or frivolously. There has been a great deal of spectacular wine produced on this property, and plenty to be gratified by – but these new releases are something else indeed. There is a completeness to the ‘15s that is otherworldly. They’re both powerful and elegant, stylish, structured and very complex wines. We won’t release them for another year or so, but we’d be pleased to give you a preview when you visit us.”
2015 “GUSTAF” A NEW BLEND
“A new and incredibly beautiful small production of primarily Cabernet Franc, named for the generations of Anderson men named Gustaf, including Gus, the founder, Todd Gustaf, and Michael Todd Gustaf. Here we produced just 90 cases of high complex and compelling Franc, with some Petit Verdot. The result is a taught, long, and fine, medium-full bodied red, with mocha, black raspberry, spice and red flowers, along with spice, leather and herb aromas and flavors. It has an incredibly long finish and should age well for up to 20 years. This very special wine is only available to taste by visitors and to purchase by club members.”
2015 “AURUM” A NEW BLEND
“Aurum is a new blend, meant to represent the best we can produce. And we mean the very, very best. It is a profoundly complex, extraordinary wine with medium-full body, beautiful deep purple robe, with a nose that reveals (with decanting!) cedar wood, crème de cassis, spices, light smoke, black raspberry, iron, tobacco and cigar box aromas. It is smooth, mouth-filling and present. The length, and the elegance of the wine will surprise and delight the most sophisticated palate. We could not possibly be prouder.”
