Winemaker Notes

Enormously complex and distinctive, this Syrah has aromas of blackberry, licorice, pomegranate, dark chocolate, smokedmeat, orange zest, potpourri and an exotic wild streak of toasted coconut. On the palate, a steely mineral exterior isintertwined with cassis, flowers and ripe plum. The ripe creamy tannins are mouth filling, silky smooth and sappy, andthe flavors linger on.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1999 Syrah Eisele Vineyard (a blend of 94% Syrah and 6% Viognier) boasts an opaque ruby/purple color along with gorgeous, complex aromatics of melted asphalt, graphite, blackberry liqueur, coffee, and a hint of pepper. This full-bodied Syrah reveals surprising freshness, finesse, and elegance despite its size. The wine is long, rich, and French in style.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Rich and intense, with complex, focused mineral, berry, leather, tobacco, white pepper and cedary notes. Concentrated, with a sense of elegance and polish.

Araujo, , California
Araujo
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.
