Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Right Bank is a dark purple color with deep red at edge. Aromas of blue violet flowers, bright red and raspberry compote, eucalyptus, and spices that include clove, anise and allspice. The palate follows the nose and reveals a wonderful balance. The oak and grape tannins are seamless, the acid is bright but does not detract from how supple and approachable the wine is , even in its youth. The wine has the framework to hold up for 30 years, but good luck waiting that long!

Blend: 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc

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.
