This wine delivers a wonderful combination of textures and expressiveness that are reminiscent of cassis and ripe plums with earthy nuances of nutmeg and roasted cocoa nib. The lingering mouth feel is smooth and seductive and possesses an elegance
typical of the Eisele Vineyard.
Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot
"There are 600 cases of the deep ruby/purple-colored 2001 Altagracia, a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 8% Petit Verdot. This seductive effort reveals more fruit, charm, and lushness than the structured, more narrow 2000. It should prove to be a crowd-pleaser if consumed over the next 7-8 years. The selection for this offering is not made in the vineyard, but rather in May, immediately before bottling."
