Inky, glass-staining purple-black. Aromatically a cornucopia of preserved fruits—currant jelly, blackberry pie filling, blueberry ganache, and maraschino cherries—with equally overt dark chocolate, sweet spice, and clove notes. Full-bodied and rounded on the palate, the tannins are ripe and sweet, with a full plush texture framing ripe blackberry, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavors. Finishing ripe and muscular, with the concentration to evolve over the next ten years. Drink now-2028.

Since 1983 we have been family owned and operated by the Anderson’s, and since our first release in 1987, Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards has been dedicated to producing world-class wines. After graduating from University of Pacific in Stockton, CA with a degree in Geology Todd went to work for a small geophysical firm that was on the cutting edge of technology for seismic oil and gas exploration. Todd soon realized the corporate world was not for him. Although he loved the industry he was in, he continually had thoughts of the outdoors and getting back in touch with the soil. These thoughts, along with the mention from his parents of starting a “small vineyard”, are what led to the creation of Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards.
