Absolute Powerhouse!

Loved the description of this wine & the varietal mix even better! This wine can certainly play with the other Big Napa cabs any day, but contains super extraction & mouthwatering flavors from the other varietals. I will definitely by purchasing other Conn Vally offerings & a little upset I only have 3 bottle left of this one! A must buy...

Lives up to the name

Beautiful elegant nose. Taste is beautiful and does live up to the right bank billing despite the extra Cab Franc ratio (60%). Lush, and complex, with lots of fruit but a nice core of structure, but no overwhelming oak or anything to interfere. Long finish. 94pts

5 Star

Always one of my favorite Napa wines since I tasted the 2001 at the winery years ago. This one is surprisingly accessible already. Two thumbs up.

Right Bank Beauty

We opened this bottle last week and I didn't remember the price or any tasting notes. What a pleasant surprise! This was a great, bold Cab blend that had a great, strong nose and a wonderful finish. My regret is not ordering more when I had the opportunity. I also regret sharing with too many others! I look forward to letting this bottle mature a few years, but it drinks well now..

Top-notch

This 2009 rendition of Anderson's Conn Valley Bordeaux blend presents a complete package. Spicy aromas on the nose. Massive concentration does not obscure the sturdy well-balanced frame punctuated by supple but omnipresent tannins.

NOt yet sampled

Very very good

Bold, crisp tannins, lots of favors. I enjoyed it very much

A softball.

Color very dark, black, pink edge. Aroma spicy without fruit. Smooth, supple, little acid or tannin. I much prefer the "Eloge"

Definitely a keeper

Opaque to the edge. Great color and nose. Well balanced fruit. A bit early for my taste but look forward to cellaring and expect enhanced development over time... Nice job WineAccess.

Drinking gooood! now 2017 and as always an impressive wine to share with friends who know good wines from around the wold. This Napa is one of my best California/USA Ambassador's. Never disappoints!! Year in and Year out... Will peak the next 5-7 years maybe more but wont last in this house that long.

Not quite Schrader but...

Excellent deep rich taste with tannins a bit young but over time will soften....I plan to hold this for a while before I drink more.

Napa Valley 2009

The 2009 vintage in California had a mix of weather conditions that kept growers busy all year long, but in the end resulted in an average-sized crop of very good wines. Ripe, rich, and full, rounder and more supple in their tannins than the 2008 and a notch under 2007 — but the best are excellent.

A slow start to the year was mitigated by good conditions through the summer; a couple of hot spells in August and September allowed the grapes to catch up.

The harvest started just ahead of normal, and things looked great until the 13th of October, when almost 4 inches of rain fell in a day. Fortunately, the rain was predicted well in advance, and many growers accelerated picking and were able to bring in much of the crop before the rain, especially Pinot Noir and other earlier-ripening grapes. The weather after the rain would be critical, as the risk of rot and dilution of flavors became a major concern for grapes not brought in before the rain. In most regions the weather improved and dried up the vineyards, extending hang-time into late October, and the majority of growers reported post-rain fruit coming in healthy and in good shape.
