Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve 1998
AROMA: Currants, rose petals, and clove spice, a touch of new leather and dried cherries
TASTE: Follows the aroma profile with fine, firm tannins. It promises to develop subtle, supple layers. Perhaps the most Bordeaux-like wine we have made.
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.
