Winemaker Notes

At its core, the Estate Reserve Cabernet is the foundation of what they produce here. It is from this wine that the higher end Signature and Aurum wines are carved out for special bottlings, and from this wine the non-reserve bottling is removed. It is designed to be derivative of the vineyards’ terroir, balanced and animated, complex, age-worthy and especially satisfying to drink. This is the earth, the weather, the plants and the winemaker in tune, together. No one style or clone or barrel dominates in any way – here is instead a full-on expression of the vineyard, from the creek to the cave.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is a little closed to begin, slowly revealing fresh blackberries, blackcurrants and black plums notes with touches of eucalypt, cinnamon stick, roses and fertile soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling black fruits with plenty of spicy accents and a pleasantly chewy finish.
JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
Starting out, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is the least expensive cuvée and spent 22 months in 55% new French oak. It offers a classic Cabernet nose of blackcurrants, new saddle leather, lead pencil, and dried tobacco. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, supple, elegant wine that has loads of charm and character. It’s a beautiful wine that will keep for 15 years or more.
JS 92
James Suckling
Some gently nutty oak influence across cassis and fragrant, violet-like florals. The palate carries plenty of sweetly spiced oak influence with a boldly ripe finish. Drink or hold.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This is a savory red, adorned in cedar, dried herb and black pepper. The aromatics are nicely defined in violet. Burly grippy tannins complement a wealth of ripe plum and graphite.

Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards, California
Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Winery Video
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.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
