About the Winery
The Geophysicist in Todd Anderson, owner and winemaker of Anderson Conn, saw the potential in his land in 1982 when he and his father came to scout in Napa. The Meyer's of Silver Oak Vineyard gave them the first of their budwood - The Bonny’s Vineyard clone (located in Block One). Their second vintage was featured on the cover of Wine Spectator.
Their vineyard is meticulously planted into blocks where the clones match the soils perfectly to give the wines a very deliberate tannin structure that showcases the wine's fruit in perfect harmony.
The winery uses no less than fifty different types of barrels and will often co-ferment the clones depending on the year. They are proud to say that their wine is free from the use of osmosis machines, chemicals, additives, oak chips and extracts...just these grapes, these barrels and nothing else.
With less than 6% Petit Verdot, this epic wine is made from the producer's best barrels and is seductive in wild vanilla, red currant and plum. Expansive and succulent on the palate, the oak is well-integrated and supportive, imparting complex notes of cigar box and clove on the lengthy, spicy finish. Enjoy best 2025–2035. ~95 WE
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is a smokin' good blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. Its deep purple/plum color is followed by a terrific perfume of blackcurrants, nori (seaweed wrapper), dark chocolate and licorice, and it develops more minerality with time in the glass. Rich, full-bodied, concentrated and structured, it has sweet tannin, a great mid-palate, and a big finish. It's still youthful and backward, and needs 3-4 years to show at its best, but will keep for two decades. ~94 JD
