Winemaker's Notes:

The color is a light golden blonde. On the nose is butterscotch, slight anise and cream, pineapple-butter, honey, and nutmeg spice. Medium mouth feel with full mouth aftertaste. Peach, mineral, pineapple. Hints of spice and oak. Will improve with age 4-7 years, hold for 10 more. Great now with Monkfish or Salmon, even Lamb chops and a glass would be great!

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 √Čloge, can be artfully handcrafted.
