2007 Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Prologue Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

This retails for about $22 and is the entry level offering from Conn Valley. We had the reserve (or maybe that's just the standard Cab?) a while back and loved it. This bottle ran me $22.

The nose is a little tight with cherry vanilla, I suppose.

A bit of vanilla, a bit of oak, a bit of fruit all over - plum, black cherry, cassis. All very nice, all very drinkable - this paired perfectly with a steak. Excellent balance. Little to really write about, this is just a nice drinking, well integrated wine.

Some spicy qualities show up on the finish, definite clove and cinammon, as well as a bit of mint.

For $22, this is a solid effort. At 1/3 the price of Conn's standard cab bottle, if I'm paying I'd be quite content snagging three bottles of this.

Score: 91
