The unfined, unfiltered 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve spends two years in French oak and another year in the bottle before being released. This cuvee has a long track record of aging (the 1990 and 1991 are still going strong). The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2006 offers notes of new saddle leather, black currants, autumnal vegetation/forest floor, cassis, and cherries, superb richness, and a full-bodied, powerful finish. Cellar it for 5-6 years, and drink it over the following 25 years.
Since the winery’s first commercial release in 1987, Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards have been producing world class wines. With a primary focus on high-end Cabernet Sauvignon, the 40-acre estate produces their wines in smaller quantities, making them difficult to obtain. Owner Todd Anderson centers most of his attention on perfecting their flagship wine, a Bordeaux-style blend that pays homage to the attractive wines of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion of the Right Bank, while also giving devoted time to special releases that have often been made from less-common varietals such as Petite Syrah. Anderson’s Conn Valley wines are quintessential examples of thoughtful winemaking techniques used to create complex and opulent characteristics in every bottle.
