Winemaker Notes

This wine exudes heady aromas of black currant, blackberry and dark plum, enhanced by touches of anise, smoke, cinnamonand cola. In the mouth, the fruit notes are pure cassis spiced with nutmeg and sarsaparilla, leading to more earthy notes of loam,graphite and espresso. The wine is dense and concentrated but balanced, its core sweetness embraced by firm but silky tannins;the wine seems to dance across the palate into a lingering finish of spice and minerals. Notes winemaker Françoise Peschon:Beginning with soft creaminess on the attack, becoming powerful and rich in the mouth, and finishing with a supple sweetness,there is tension in this wine that holds your interest throughout. It is a wine of power, persistence and grace.
Blend: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 97
Wine Spectator
Dense, rich and enormously concentrated, mixing power with finesse. Pure, ripe, riveting aromas of blackberry, blueberry, currant, sage, cedar, espresso and mocha lead to a full-bodied palate, firming beautifully on the finish, where the flavors glide along and gain traction. Drink now through 2028.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium-deep color. Attractive, rich bouquet features scents of ripe plums, violet, licorice, and chocolate. As it sits, a smoky note becomes more apparent. Sweet dark berry fruit on entry; juicy and chewy in the mouth with a lot going on. This youthful, full-bodied wine gets high marks for the quality of the extracted fruit, balance, depth, complexity, and superb texture. Modest finish with a little heat at the end. There’s a bright future here.

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.
