Winemaker Notes

This intense, inky-hued wine displays flamboyant aromas of crushed blackberries, dark chocolate, sandalwood and exotic floral notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom. In the mouth, it is deep, dark and densely brooding, as flavors of plum, mocha and licorice fill the palate, finishing with persistent mineral notes marked by remarkable sweetness and fine tannins. Winemaker Francoise Peschon notes: This luscious wine has layers and layers of flavor of black fruit and spices, with an underlying structure of supple tannins and gravelly finesse. It combines the heady wildness of the Syrah grape with the elegant terroir of the Eisele Vineyard in a compelling, sensuous and complete wine.

Araujo, California
Image of winery
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.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
