Winemaker Notes

"The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is a 1,700 case blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Built for the long run, but accessible enough to drink now, this saturated purple-colored beauty offers up gorgeously pure aromas of white flowers intermixed with cedar, black currant liqueur, and subtle toasty oak. Layered, multidimensional, and pure, it admirably balances power and elegance. For me, this is the finest Cabernet Sauvignon produced at this estate since 1995 (which is drinking terrifically at present)." -WA

This hallmark wine balances power, elegance and finesse in the dense tannin structure characteristic of a fine vintage. Luscious aromas of cassis and blackberry give way to opulent layers black currant and dark chocolate flavors in the mouth, while notes of spice and cedar, hints of violets and a crushed granite minerality linger in the long finish. Winemaker Françoise Peschon notes: A combination of an exceptional 2001 vintage, extreme selection in the vineyard and careful blending in the winery have produced this intense, classic expression of Eisele Vineyard terroir. Abundant fine tannins, pure flavors and perfect balance assure years of ageing potential.

Wine Spectator
Wonderful complexity, depth and finesse, with layers of mocha, espresso, currant, wild berry and vanilla bean flavors that are sharply focused, finishing with tight yet supple tannins and a long, rich aftertaste with layers of complexity.

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.

Calistoga Wine

Napa Valley, California

One of Napa Valley’s oldest wine growing subregions but last to gain appellation status, Calistoga occupies the northernmost section of the valley. Beginning at the foot of Mount St. Helena, its vineyards stretch over steep canyons and roll out onto the valley floor. The soils in Calistoga are volcanic, which means they are heavy in minerals, low in organic matter and allow good drainage for vine roots, creating less green growth and more concentration of flavor within the grape berries.

Summer days are very hot but most nights cool down with moist ocean breezes sneaking in over the Mayacamas Mountains or from Knights Valley to its northwest.

Cabernet Sauvignon is the area’s star variety with Zinfandel coming in a strong second, though the latter commands far less price per tonnage so continues to be outshined by Cabernet in vineyard acreage, save for some important exceptions.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
