Winemaker Notes

This powerful wine is brimming with flavors of ripe dark fruit—blackberry, blueberry, plum and blackcurrant—balanced by dark chocolate, roasted coffee, spice and sweet vanilla notes.

Winemaker Francoise Peschon comments: There is anearthy and mineral character typical of the Eisele Vineyard terroir, with seamless fine-grained tannins that are elegantly integrated. Dense and structured, this wine will benefit from several more years of bottle age, and should age gracefully for at least two decades.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator
Smooth and polished, with detailed flavors of ripe plum, black cherry, spice and light oak, this pedigreed red turns rich and elegant, with a long, complex aftertaste.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The saturated purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard offers an attractive nose of black fruits intermixed with toast, minerals, subtle tar, and wood smoke. Full-bodied, with impressive purity, a multi-layered mid-palate and finish, it is an expressive, pure, powerful, and large-boned wine.

Araujo, California
Araujo Winery Image
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.
