96 Points Robert Parker: Its safe to say that Todd Anderson and winemaking assistant Mac Sawyer are flying on all cylinders with their Bordeaux varietals at this winery tucked away in the Conn Valley. They also make some Pinot Noir which I am decidedly less enthusiastic about and some Petite Sirah which is promising. There are three red wine cuvees made the Right Bank based on the Pomerol concept of a Merlot-dominated wine with some Cabernet Franc in it the pure Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve which has long been the flagship wine of the estate and of course the Eloge which is more of a Medoc-like blend of two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon about 20-25% Cabernet Franc and the balance Merlot and Petit Verdot. These are all sensational wines all worth tracking down in the marketplace. There are approximately 1000 cases of the Right Bank. It is usually a blend of two-thirds Merlot and one-third Cabernet Franc. The Eloge normally a blend of approximately 65% Cabernet Sauvignon 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest

The 2005 Eloge, essentially the same blend as the 2004, is even better. A terrific wine that has put on significant weight since I tasted it last year. It now reveals gorgeous incense, cedar, black currant, and cherry notes intermixed with some spice box, new saddle leather, and smoky, gamey notes. Full-bodied, dense, chewy, but gorgeously elegant, complex, and altogether perfectly balanced, this is a fabulous effort and is already drinkable, but promises to evolve and last for at least another 15-20 years.

Mocha, blackberries, some black pepper and cassis. Full-bodied, with full rich middle palate, many layers of fruit. Perfect balance of fruit, oak and acid, this wine is opulent and intense. Great finish.
