Anderson's Conn Valley "Right Bank" Napa Valley 2010

Deep red/purple.

Opened yesterday - beautiful nose of herbs, toast, black raspberry, melted chocolate. Fresh, nuanced.

Round and luxurious in the mouth - all over the place - and yet has a firm spine of acid-driven tannin that slowly manifests itself.
Bright flavors of mint, tar and blackberry. Even shows a slightly saline aspect. This is RFG. Acid/tannin structure coats the front
in "chew". Only one bottle left - not touching it for at least 8-10 years..

$60 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc.
