Anderson's Conn Valley, Napa Valley, Eloge 2008
'Eloge' means 'praiseworthy' in French. In the heart of the Napa Valley, the Anderson family grows the red Bordeaux varietal grapes that are blended in the classic Bordeaux style to produce this 'praiseworthy' wine.
Even though it will benefit from further aging, you can enjoy this wine on release. Observe the beautiful color, smell the rich bouquet, enjoy this fine wine and taste why we are so justly proud.
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Eloge is a deep, plush wine. Dark plums, black cherries, new leather and licorice are some of the notes that jump from the glass in this forward, succulent wine. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the plush, round finish. In 2008 the blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot and 10% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
