Éloge Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Ming L

A nice contrast to the ‘17 Right Bank, this left bank blend is rich and supple, with notes of black currant, cassis, cedar, cinnamon, forest floor, and violet. Warm and velvety with sleek acidity. Delicious tannins. I usually prefer the Right Bank, in particular for its QPR. But on this occasion, this left bank shines. — 2 months ago

Napa Valley Petit Verdot 2015

Dried flowers, cocoa, anise & black tea. A mediocre Petit Verdot but the palate was balanced & softer than I expected. — 3 years ago

Right Bank Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Ming L

The ‘17 Right Bank is a blend of 56/44 CF/Merlot. Red fruited with spices and chocolate. Light green note as well. Balanced and textured palate. Nice easy drinking but lacking characters. — 2 months ago

Estate Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Ming L

Of the 3 Napa cabs for the night, this is the most approachable. The nose and palate are immediately attractive, exhibiting perfectly ripen plum, blackberry, cassis, cedar, clove, dark chocolate and tobacco. Very good depth of flavors. Plush and balanced. Polished tannins.
Shows great at this young age, and will evolve beautifully for the next 10-15 years.

Anthology Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

A beautiful wine from a producer that I’m quite fond of (more on that in a bit). This selection is 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. The fruit is sourced from six appellations: Oakville, Rutherford, Atlas Peak, Diamond Mountain, Stags Leap District, and Chiles Valley. Coming from a vintage with “typical” Napa Valley weather conditions, this bottle is the perfect iteration of Anthology for me to try for the first time. Plush, cool, sweet black & blue fruits - plums, blackberries, boysenberries - laced in Christmas spices, coffee grounds, vanilla, and star anise. On the palate a lovely, velvety texture that accentuates the sensuous plumpness that stands out on the nose. A lovely wine ✨

A quick word on Conn Creek as a producer.

Many years ago when I first “getting into” wine I had a friend who introduced me to Conn Creek (both their Cab and their red blend). After that first exposure to their wine my wife & I began keeping their wines on hand at all times, as they were ideal selections to have around the home for all kinds of occasions. Alas, this is my first Anthology and what a delicious selection it is.
