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.

87-89 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1999

Black fruits, graphite, mint and oak spice on the nose. Slightly tart in the mouth, with strong acidity giving the wine a hard edge. Tannins seem a bit tough for a wine from this vintage.

Cassis, leather, rich, and a supple texture, this will keep in the cellar for as long as you can kep the corkscrew away. This is just as good as the 1995 and 1996, yet the price will come into question. But if price is not an issue, then keep enjoying Gus Anderson's gem.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
