On the nose it takes me back to Santa Barbara or pass tasting Syrah. Dark jammy fruit with dirt/forest, tons of baking spice, some wood, coffee grounds, and good tannin. I like this much more than the other reviews, maybe because price being 17 bucks? — 2 months ago
10 years in and drinking incredible. Soft yet full. Fruit still robust. — 4 years ago
It was very smooth and light. One of my favorite Pinot Niors that I have had in a long time! — 6 months ago
07' Anderson Conn Valley Reserve. We opened a bottle of this several years ago, it wasn't showing particularly well. I was hoping for the best tonight , I'm thinking we came close.
Which seems to be my usual one hour decanting along side the Agharta. This 100% Cabernet shows very little signs of aging at all. This is NOT a powerhouse of wine. Light/medium- bodied cab. Layers of black fruits .Very expressive, nice mouth feel to it. A slightly shortened finish? Light sediment. I don't think this wine is peaking yet?
Edit- The tannins have dissipated, but the acidity is still rather present. Thinking it's got another 8/10 very good years in it.

Bright red fruit with grippy tannins. A surprisingly fresh and light take of this varietal from Napa. — 2 years ago
Dark color, concentrated. Heavy alcohol dominates, fairly acidic. Works reasonably well with lamb chops, too strong on its own. — 3 years ago
Menthol, tobacco, and sweet dark fruits — 5 years ago
