International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

Saturated ruby-red. Plum, currant, roasted tobacco, cedar, leather, smoke and underbrush on the nose. Dense, fleshy and impressively thick; wonderfully ripe and expressive in the middle palate. The strong but sweet tannins hit the palate late and build with aeration. Impressive.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 132

The finest Eloge to date is the 1997, a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Merlot. This wine has put on weight since last year (a tendency of all of the Conn Valley wines). It reveals a complex, Cheval Blanc-like nose of black fruits intermixed with chocolate, cedar, licorice, and Asian spices. A classic, it is deep, opulent, and medium to full-bodied, with admirable balance between power and elegance. Possessing exceptional purity, an alluring texture, and a long, smooth finish, it can be drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years.
