    August 30, 2017 - Decanted and drank over 2 hours w grilled steak. What a pleasant surprise, I haven't had a CVV wine that I liked in a while - to my palate they lack concentration of fruit, depth of flavor, and character. A bit more concentration to warrant a higher rating, but this had just enough. Silky tannins and some perfumey aromatics. Drink or hold 5 years.

    August 29, 2017 - Rich black fruits (blackberry and plum); full bodied oak and fruit predominant but not jammy. Layered and quite good; more full bodied, more dark versus fed fruits but less elegant than other Eloge vintages. Pop and pour, but would have benefited from 1-3 hour decant. 14.8% abv.

    August 21, 2017 - PNP, paired with steaks. Really solid Bordeaux blend. Blue and black fruit, good structure.

    July 20, 2017 - The practice of French parents serving their children wine cut with water is commonly accepted. Why not take the same approach to premium wines that are a bit over the top alcohol wise? My preferences has shifted dramatically in the last 10 years, as I gravitate towards classical wines, often European and lower in alcohol. So, what do you do with the higher alcohol, new world wines in your cellar?

    Tonight I "cut" this 14.8% alcohol Eloge with 100 ml of filtered water. The result was a wine that sacrificed nothing on the nose, palette or finish. A bit more voluptuous, round and easy to drink -- with not the slightest hint of heat at its reduced ~12.5% alcohol level. I'd easily rate this wine a 90 plus in its adulterated state.

    Napa insiders know that winemakers add water, oak chips and even sugar during the fermentation and aging process. So why not add a bit of water yourself to a high alcohol wine -- especially if these bottles are sitting in your cellar collecting dust and going to waste. Why risk a foggy head tonight or an aching one tomorrow morning?

    July 15, 2017 - Aging beautifully. Gorgeous, bold nose. Well-balanced fruit and acid. No harshness. Long finish. Continues to benefit from decanting.
