WINE DEAL OF THE DAY
Below are details for today's newly sourced wine deal:
We offered Todd Anderson's 2006 Eloge, with its 95+ point Robert Parker press, to WineAccess members a few months ago. Not surprisingly, it disappeared in a flash. Anderson was happy with the sale, but reluctantly so. People are drinking his wines too fast, he lamented. Conn Valley Cabernet is all about patience.
So we challenged Todd to back up his words. We asked him to send us a few older bottles. A week later, the boxes showed up. Instead of 'a few bottles,' he'd sent us two cases -- 15 vintages in all. There was a small note inside that read simply, "It's time to prove a point."
And that he did, again and again, vintage after vintage. We opened the 2000 Eloge (yes, you read the vintage right) and poured it into our favorite Zalto glasses. The color showed no signs of age. The fruit remained dark, laced with black olive and the complexity of the secondary aromas put us on notice -- when it comes to Conn Valley Cabernet, patience is a virtue.
Deal: 2000 Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Eloge Cabernet. Originally $75/bottle. Buy now for as little as $30.99/bottle shipped on orders of 4 bottles or more!
