Winemaker Notes

The tiny berries characteristic of the vintage here gave us an intense wine of remarkable depth and intensity, with loads of full, round tannins and mouth-coating flavor, but with delicacy in the dusty potpourri nose and the long graphite finish. The wine is earth-driven, rich and vibrant

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
A complex nose of smoke, grilled meats, dark fruits, asphalt, and lead pencil. Full bodied, with super fine tannins, fresh acidity and a long complex and fruity finish. This is all about complexity and finesse. Already coming out and drinking wonderfully now.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is a surprisingly soft, round, delicious wine that, while quite backward and tannic last year, now seems to be up-front, forward, and easy to drink. Much lighter than I remember, with less color saturation, the wine has a dark plum/ruby color and an attractive nose of red currants, cherries, and black currants, with some loamy soil notes and hints of licorice. It is mid-weight, medium-bodied, and ideal for drinking now and over the next 12-14 years.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Fresh mint, bay leaf, anise and savory herb notes highlight the aromas, which also feature supple plum, cranberry and red currant flavors that are dense and focused, if limited in scope. The minty bay leaf scents remain, and this offers an elegant body that makes for a graceful drink. Has aged as predicted.—2006 California Cabernet blind retrospective (December 2015). Drink now through 2020.

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.
