Winemaker Notes

This Syrah is packed with spices of cinnamon, allspice and pepper, and rich ripe fruit expressed as dried cranberries, dark plum sauce, black cherries, well integrated with notes of toffee, molasses, and créme de cassis. The tannins are dense and voluminous, yet velvety and soft.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Wonderful depth, richness, texture and complexity to this, with tiers of leathery currant, earth, anise, sage and the hallmark mineral aftertaste.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1996 Syrah Eisele Vineyard (350 cases) is a full-bodied, brawny wine revealing the tell-tale peppery, blackberry, and cassis scents that seem so easy to obtain with this varietal in California. It is rich and pure, with sweet tannin and plenty of power harnessed in a symmetrical, large-scaled effort that is not without considerable elegance for its mass and volume. This wine can be drunk now, but should be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring, and should last for 15 or more years.

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.
