Who needs a big ceremony when you have the one you love? Of course, you don’t have to run off in the middle of the night to have fun. Elope is our impulsive label, it’s the wine we can’t wait any longer to enjoy.
The 2007 Poem Cellars Elope is an elegant and powerful wine sourced from a single vineyard in St. Helena. The nose is evocative with ripe red and blue fruits, black plum, black coffee, leather and herbal notes. On the tongue, cassis, cherry, lead pencil, cocoa nib, hibiscus tea, moss with a whisper of black licorice. With these dusty earth notes and soft tannins, Elope showcases the breeding of the vineyard. The fruit is high toned and lush, the body is fleshy and full, the tannins are moderate and the wine offers a 40 second finish.
The composition is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc.
Aged in 60% new oak barrels and 40% one year old barrels.
Only 100 cases produced.
