Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Right Bank 2016
WA94: The 2016 Right Bank Proprietary Red Wine is composed of 56% Cabernet Franc and 44% Merlot. Deep purple-black in color, it comes leaping out of the glass with bold blackberry, warm plums and black cherries scents complimented by hints of chargrill, tar and cedar chest. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with soft-textured black fruits, finishing on a lingering peppery note.
VM94: The 2016 Right Bank has really gained tremendous weight and richness over the last year. Black cherry, smoke, leather, licorice, cloves and scorched earth are front and center in this massively hulking Right Bank. Deep, dense and potent, the 2016 will go on for 15 to 20 years; maybe more. This is an impressive showing.
