About Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards
Todd Anderson's 40-acre estate, set east of St. Helena where Conn Creek Flows out of Howell Mountain, has some swanky neighbors in Joseph Phelps and Joseph Heitz. Here he produces a rich, non-malolactic Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and his heavy-weights, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and Eloge, a deep, rich blend of Cabernet and Cabernet Franc, with superb aging potential.

Splash decanted this 2-3 hours in advance and sipped while prepping dinner. Good immediately, but really came alive in the glass. Over the course of a two-hour dinner, this wine blew me away. The bordeaux blend was a perfect match for the rack of lamb and mushroom wild rice. I could not stop drinking and savoring this terrific wine! Was initially wary I may have opened too soon, but the hunch paid off. Can't wait to enjoy my remaining bottles in the years to come.
Wonderfully complex, dark fruit, could savor for hours.
Great stuff. Sure bet.
Makes you look like a wine expert.

Let it air for 6 or so hours and what a wonderful taste and aroma.
Still too young
Needs at least another 2-3 years of bottle aging. Decanted for over an hour and still very tight. Don't open until 2017
