The 2016 Napa Valley wine, which they make in tiny quantities from 100% estate fruit, is going to rock you, bursting from the glass with sweet, succulent blackberry and mulberry fruit. It’s fleshy and low in acid, which makes it dangerously easy to drink on weeknights, cookouts, and impromptu visits from family and friends. Grab a case of this one, at what is effectively wholesale pricing, and watch the contented smiles unfold this summer. This is a FANTASTIC deal!
Part of our sworn oath as Bounty Hunters is to break the glass and sound at least two air horns when a bottle of Napa Valley Cabernet rocks us, and the wider market is otherwise oblivious. Anderson's Conn Valley, whose vines are now nearly 30 years old, is cranking out some of the Napa Valley's very best Cabernet Sauvignon, but is somehow not part of collectors' awareness as much as the likes of Harlan, Bond, Scarecrow, or Schrader. Neither is its neighbor Seavey, who we would place in the same category. Conn Valley is overlooked because it's kind of remote, not as accessible as its neighbor on the other side of Lake Hennessey, Pritchard Hill.
