Winemaker's Notes:

Medium ruby with purple edges. Aromas of cigar box, currants, mocha and black stone fruit. A very rich and plush nose with some violets and chocolate. Lots of blackberry and anise on the palate along with coffee bean, plum and spice. Medium mouth feel with depth and richness. The tannin and fruit are well balanced. Long finish with fruit in the background. Medium after taste.

This wine will keep getting better for 8-10 years and hold for another 8 years at least.

"The 2006 Right Bank, a blend of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot, has sweet notes of bouquet garni intermixed with roasted coffee, chocolate, black cherry, and black currant. The wine is deep, rich, round, but once the tannins kick in at the back of the palate, this wine clearly begs for bottle age. Give it 4-5 years of cellar age and drink it over the following 25+ years.
-Wine Advocate 95/100 Robert Parker

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.
