Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Éloge 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Dark purple colored, almost black. Aroma: Extraordinary aromas of mocha, violets, chocolate, cedar and black stone fruits fill your glass with just the right amount of oak to balance. Taste: Your first sip will be more fruit forward with juicy ripe blackberries, but quickly followed by some coffee bean spice, chocolate covered cherries, and layers of concentrated dark fruit flavors. There are great fruit and oak tannins that give a sweetness due to the short tannins making this a very approachable blend. Once you swallow, you will keep on enjoying this wine for another 2-3 minutes due to its long, lingering finish! This wine should only get better with age...please enjoy it for another 10-14 years!

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

98 points - Robert Parker"The 2007 Eloge is a profoundly complex, extraordinary wine that is showing better out of bottle than it ever did from barrel. The final blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot reveals an inky/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of graphite, creme de cassis, cedarwood, Christmas fruitcake, bay leaf and a damp forest floor-like character. It possesses sensational depth, a full-bodied opulence, admirable purity and a skyscraper-like texture and finish. This killer wine has not yet closed down, and it should drink well for 20-25 years." (Dec. 2010)

The 2007 Eloge (65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot) possesses a denser, more concentrated style than even the 2006. The tannins are also slightly sweeter, and the wine is more voluminous, layered, and tex... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
