Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made up of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, the deep purple-black 2016 Eloge Proprietary Red Wine is provocatively scented of crushed black cherries, red and black currants and kirsch with nuances of Indian spices, cardamom, forest floor, smoked meats and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied and strutting a lot of poise on the palate, it gives layer upon layer of red and black fruits with loads of earthy sparks and a finely textured finish.
Rating: 97+
V 93
Vinous
The 2016 Eloge is dense, layered and super-expressive. Black cherry, plum, cloves, licorice, chocolate and espresso flesh out in a potent, backward wine that is going to require a good deal of patience. Today, the tannins are especially forbidding. Even so, the 2016 is very promising. There is a bit more Cabernet than normal in the 2016, and that is felt in the wine's gravitas.

Wine Enthusiast
This blends 66% Cabernet Sauvignon with 28% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Together, they combine for a soft rounded palate of smoky cherry, currant, clove and cinnamon. A light grip of tannin gives it additional power and statement, with a finish of black pepper. Enjoy 2026–2031.
Cellar Selection
JD 91
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Eloge Proprietary Red Wine (66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot aged 22 months in 55% new oak) has slightly more new oak on the nose as well as plenty of crème de cassis, black cherries, scorched earth and chocolate. It's firm, focused, and tight on the palate, with medium to full body and ripe tannins, but really needs short-term cellaring. It should have 15+ years of overall longevity.

Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards, California
Video of winery
Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards are located just east of St. Helena in the Napa Valley where Conn Creek flows out of Howell Mountain. Twenty-six acres of vineyards, divided into nine blocks, along with a fifteen acre-foot reservoir are the heart of this 40-acre grape-growing paradise.

Separated from the Napa Valley floor by a north/south running ridge, the world-renowned wineries of Joseph Heitz and Joseph Phelps are located on the west side of this ridge and the Anderson's Estate Vineyards are on the east side at a perfect elevation of 400 feet.

The vineyards not only enjoy Napa Valley's superb microclimate, but share the same Bale Loam Series as are found on the famous Rutherford Bench. This combination of clay-loam soil and microclimate produces up to 106 tons of exceptional fruit each year. One from which a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-style blend, called Éloge, can be artfully handcrafted.

Napa Valley

Red Wine

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
