Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Light golden straw.

Aroma: Beautiful bouquet. Cream, minerals, pears in butter, toasted nuts, oak and fruit with a nutmeg background.

Taste: Medium bodied, hints of melon with herbs and ripe pears, toast and butter. A complexity that past vintages have not had. Minerals with peaches and cream. The fruit—acid—oak balance is perfect. Long finish and a lingering after taste that says "another sip". Will get better and better 4-6 years and hold for 5 years after that

About Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards:

Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards are located just east of St. Helena in the Napa Valley where Conn Creek flows out of Howell Mountain. Twenty-six acres of vineyards, divided into nine blocks, along with a fifteen acre-foot reservoir are the heart of this 40-acre grape-growing paradise.

Separated from the Napa Valley floor by a north/south running ridge, the world-renowned wineries of Joseph Heitz and Joseph Phelps are located on the west side of this ridge and the Anderson's Estate Vineyards are on the east side at a perfect elevation of 400 feet.

The vineyards not only enjoy Napa Valley's superb microclimate, but share the same Bale Loam Series as are found on the famous Rutherford Bench. This combination of clay-loam soil and microclimate produces up to 106 tons of exceptional fruit each year. One from which a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-style blend, called Éloge, can be artfully handcrafted.
