65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot
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!
"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.
