Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Éloge 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

95+ points Robert Parker: The 2006 Eloge's dark plum/ruby color is followed by a sweet kiss of plum, black cherry, earth, licorice, and spice box, a medium to full-bodied wine, abundant tannin, and impressive concentration, purity, and overall complexity. Reasonably evolved, and extremely seductive aromatically, with a slightly structured finish, it can be enjoyed now and over the next 15 years. It is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot, and 3% Merlot. (Dec 2009)

Once the grapes are picked, which can take anywhere from three days to three weeks depending on the weather, they are crushed and the juice placed in large stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Fermentation is allowed to proceed until just the right amount of sugar has been converted to alcohol, at which point the young wine is separate from the remaining pomace of skins and sediment and racked into French oak barrels to age in the caves. Periodically, the barrels are racked over the course of two years to remove standing sediment prior to bottling, corking, labeling and packaging. Wine cases are then stored in a specially designed, temperature controlled warehouse. Read less

The 2006 Eloge is nearly as profound. A slightly different blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot, the wine is full-bodied, gamey, and earthy, displaying tremendous ripeness and stunning aromatics of underbrush, bay leaf, creme de cassis, mint, and almost a kitchen shelf of spices. Fragrant, full-bodied, with stunning concentration, admirable purity, and terrific ripeness and length, this is a rather remarkable effort in a tannic, muscular vintage such as 2006.
