Winemaker Notes

This wine exhibits the distinctive Eisele Vineyard flavors of cassis, dark chocolate, toffee and cedar, with nuances of spice and a long mineral finish. Winemaker Francoise Peschon describes the wine as full bodied, concentrated, and multi-layered with marvelous extraction and suppleness. This vintage impresses consulting winemaker Tony Soter with its harmony: The power of this wine is beautifully balanced by its fine silky tannins. Its persistent and complex fruit aromas and flavors are lush, luxurious and seamless on the palate. Reminiscent of the 1991 vintage, it is a cellar classic and should age effortlessly for 20 to 30 years.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the renowned Eisele Vineyard, which has a long history of producing stunning wines (the Ridge 1971 Eisele Vineyard, the Conn Creek 1974, the Phelps 1976 Insignia, and the 1975 and 1978 Eisele Vineyard Cabernets). At present, the Araujos limit production of their estate Cabernet Sauvignon to approximately 2,500 cases. It is a wine that combines the extraordinary power and richness of this hot area of Napa, with stunning purity and delineation. The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is just beginning to emerge from a period of post-bottling dormancy. Like its siblings, it exhibits an impressively saturated dark purple color. This wine is intent on revealing its charms at a relatively early age given its knock-out aromatics. Although slightly less powerful than the 1993 and marginally less concentrated than the 1995, the 1994 is still a profoundly rich, silky-textured wine with an uncanny balance between its smooth tannin and layers of cassis and blackberry/mineral-tinged fruit. This wine is particularly impressive if it is first decanted for 45 or so minutes. It will age well for 15-20 years.

WS 93
Wine Spectator

This wine builds intensity and depth, with a youthful, vibrant core of black cherry, currant and wild berry. Deftly balanced, with firm tannins and fine structure, the finish shows power and finesse, with a rich aftertaste and loads of tannins yet to shed.--California Cabernet '74/'84/'94 retrospective. Drink now through 2014. 2,400 cases made.

Araujo
Since 1971, some of California's most ageworthy and intensely-flavored Cabernet Sauvignons have been made from grapes grown at the Eisele Vineyard, located on a benchland near the northern end of Napa Valley, just east of Calistoga. Protected by the Palisades Mountains to the north and cooled by westerly breezes from the Chalk Hill Gap, this 38-acre vineyard is planted on warm cobbly soils that produce a low-yielding crop of exceptionally concentrated fruit. Bart and Daphne Araujo acquired the Eisele Vineyard in 1990, and committed to producing only wines of the highest caliber and distinction. Araujo Estate produces 4 wines each vintage: Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard, Altagracia, Syrah Eisele Vineyard and Sauvignon Blanc Eisele Vineyard.
