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.
Since the winery’s first commercial release in 1987, Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards have been producing world class wines. With a primary focus on high-end Cabernet Sauvignon, the 40-acre estate produces their wines in smaller quantities, making them difficult to obtain. Owner Todd Anderson centers most of his attention on perfecting their flagship wine, a Bordeaux-style blend that pays homage to the attractive wines of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion of the Right Bank, while also giving devoted time to special releases that have often been made from less-common varietals such as Petite Syrah. Anderson’s Conn Valley wines are quintessential examples of thoughtful winemaking techniques used to create complex and opulent characteristics in every bottle.
