The 2013 Eloge is quite a bit darker, fleshier and more explosive than the 2012, but is also holding back quite a bit in reserve. Pine, mint, smoke and licorice wrap around the intense, blue/blackish fruit. Blackberry jam, savory herbs and licorice are some of the notes that inform the powerful finish, where beams of acidity add brightness.
Dense purple with a gorgeous, young, but promising nose of blackberry and cassis, licorice, forest floor and earth, the wine hits the palate with a supple, ripe integrated tannic framework, intense black fruits, full body and a long finish.
A beautifully crafted red with rich, complex cherry, plum, wild berry, anise, toast and vanilla notes.

"The 2004 Eloge (65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot) is a beauty. Notes of cedar, spice box, black currant, leather, truffle, and earth jump from the glass of this elegant yet authoritatively flavored wine that shows terrific fruit intensity, full body, and silky tannins. This is a complex, beautiful wine that should drink splendidly for 15 or more years."
A marvelously ripe and powerful Cabernet, dominated by our Block #3 Eisele Clone, and raised in new French oak. Just eight barrels produced each year of this wine.
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature has a nose of baked blackberries, black cherries and earthy notions with hints of underbrush, bay leaves and meat. Full-bodied and full-on savory in the mouth, it has chewy tannins and a meaty/peppery finish." 94+ pts Robert Parker

Just releasing now, the new 2016 Right Bank is an absolutely smashing blend of 56% Cabernet Franc, and the balance in Merlot from our estate. Powerful bright red and black fruits, with a fresh cedar plank, spice and snappy mineral tinged berry flavors. Tight right now, but opens with aeration. This is a real triumph for us, and one of the best Right Banks in a long while.
