    Medium red. Vinous aromas of cherry, redcurrant and tobacco. Sweeter and rounder than the 1999, with a bit more flesh and fat to buffer its structure. In a distinctly suppler style. Finishes with sweet tannins.

    The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, from a tough vintage, is not as powerful as most examples. Nevertheless, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of damp earth, black currants, tobacco leaf, and saddle leather. Medium-bodied with supple tannin, and a surprisingly long finish, it may improve in the bottle, and prove to be unusually long lived for the vintage (12-15 years).

    Little tight. Needs roughly 4+ hours of decanting. Seemed to open up after it had sat. Flavors became more noticable with the smell of oak tapering off.

Nestled deep in Conn Valley, east of St. Helena and the Meadowood Resort, Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyard remains an impressive, if not sometimes forgotten, source of very complex and potentially age worthy wines in Napa Valley. The vineyard produces beautifully rich, blackcurrant-flavored wines that have demonstrated stunning purity of flavor and aging potential while portraying a union of flamboyant Californian ripeness and Bordelais elegance and nuance.

Todd Anderson and winemaker Mac Sawyer initially put themselves on the map with their long-lived, estate Cabernet, but have expanded their repertoire to include Bordeaux tributes "Right Bank Cuvee" and Robert Parker-favorite "Eloge," which he calls "a distinct effort of first-growth quality."
