2010 Anderson's Conn Valley "Right Bank" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Mocha, plums, cloves, menthol and licorice all flesh out in the 2010 Right Bank. Rich, layered and expressive, the 2010 stands out for its superb balance and layered personality. The 2010 is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, with the Merlot playing a leading role in defining the wine's juicy, resonant personality.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This estate has excelled with its Right Bank blend, a St.-Emilion look-alike, since it was first introduced. The 2010 Right Bank, a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, offers attractive, complex aromas of tobacco leaf, licorice, spice box, black currants and cherries. Medium to full-bodied, opulent and fleshy, this winner is ideal for drinking over the next 10-15 years.
Well-built and intense, with dried berry, cedar and pencil lead notes leading to flavors of bay leaf and earth. Muddled on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2018. (Web-2013)
