If you haven't yet discovered this 30 year old Napa estate, Conn Valley is one of the valley's most highly rated wineries producing propietary wines. We have a great relationship with Todd Anderson who we visit in Napa, and he comes to the shop when he's on the East Coast. We are always impressed by his extreme commitment to quality and details. Parker has been a long time Conn Valley fan, and often sings the Anderson family's praises. We believe that Conn Valley is the single best example of an overachiever in California for those seeking exceptional, ageworthy American wines. This cuvée, which the winery calls 'Right Bank', is a Merlot-dominated blend that emulates the great wines of Pomerol. The 2012 is stunningly good, we think it may be the best vintage ever produced. Aged 22 months in oak, the final blend was 68% Cabernet Franc and 32% Merlot.

Wine AdvocateThe Right Bank (67% Cabernet Franc and 33% Merlot) has been a perennial winner from this Conn Valley vineyard since it made its debut as Gus Anderson's homage to the Right Bank wines of Pomerol and St.-Emilion. The dense ruby/purple-colored 2012 Proprietary Red Blend Right Bank offers mocha, white chocolate, plum, black cherry and blackcurrant characteristics, medium to full body, and an opulent, round, seductive style. This fleshy, complex red can be drunk young or cellared for 12-15+ years.

VinousA big step up from the 2011, the 2012 Right Bank is fleshy, radiant and expressive. Dark red cherry, mocha, plum, smoke, leather and licorice meld together in a supple, open red with lovely mid-palate depth and density. This mid-weight Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. The blend is 67% Cabernet Franc and 33% Merlot.
