Luxurious New Release
We discovered this luxurious new release deep in the cool, dark barrel cellars at Anderson Conn Valley’s St. Helena headquarters, when we were greeted with an unexpected surprise. Instead of bottles and a neat tasting sheet, spread before us was eight mystery magnums. Yet, marked only with blue painters tape and a smattering of letters and numbers. The code was imperceptible. As we sat down, the anticipation was palpable—this was no average tasting.
In the depths of the cellar, all eight wines dark, inky, and purple in the glass. Across the board, they were rich, opulent and berry-scented, with varying levels of spice, earth, toast, and herbs. But one wine stood out. The Anderson Conn Valley Napa Valley Cabernet 2017, which leaped from the glass with the signature warmth, depth, and robust fruit flavors of the St. Helena AVA.
Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards
So, after graduating from the 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. And that’s what led to the creation of Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards.
