Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Éloge 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

96-98 points Robert Parker: Remarkably, the 2008 Eloge may be as compelling. Composed of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot, it exhibits a dense opaque purple color followed by aromas of espresso roast, cassis, blueberries, licorice and lead pencil shavings. Deep, full and layered with phenomenal concentration and purity, this wine satisfies both the hedonistic and intellectual senses. It should drink well for 15-20 years. (Dec 2010)

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 consistency of "ELOGE" since 2002 is amazing. The 2008 continues the quest for perfection. The tannins encase both the softness and smoothness of this wine and then slip away at the right moment so that you can really enjoy the heart and soul of this gorgeous wine. The "ELOGE" takes you to the next level of wine enjoyment.

This is the perfect red. I have been drinking every vintage and when you say it can't get any better, the next vintage steps it up a notch. Robert Parker gave the latest release a 96-100 rating.
