Araujo Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1994

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine exhibits the distinctive Eisele Vineyard flavors of cassis, dark chocolate, toffee and cedar, with nuances of spice and a long mineral finish. Winemaker Francoise Peschon describes the wine as full bodied, concentrated, and multi-layered with marvelous extraction and suppleness. This vintage impresses consulting winemaker Tony Soter with its harmony: The power of this wine is beautifully balanced by its fine silky tannins. Its persistent and complex fruit aromas and flavors are lush, luxurious and seamless on the palate. Reminiscent of the 1991 vintage, it is a cellar classic and should age effortlessly for 20 to 30 years.

To develop and operate a world-class winegrowing estate. To produce organically grown fruit and with this fruit make a singular wine of the highest caliber and distinction. The style of the wine should be at once classic and contemporary... it should express the uniqueness of the precious resource that is Araujo Estate. Our estate is a wine property located in the northeast Napa Valley, just east of Calistoga. Its two primary components are the 38-acre Eisele VineyardTM, and a winery and cave complex we designed and built specifically to vinify only Eisele Vineyard grapes. The Eisele Vineyard is one of the most respected Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Napa Valley, equivalent to a premier cru Bordeaux. Warm days, cool nights and well-drained cobbly soils produce remarkable wines. The vineyard was established more than 120 years ago, and was first planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in 1964. When we acquired it in 1990, we began extensive renovation of the existing buildings, created a new winery and caves, and in the vineyard, refined the varietal mix and upgraded clone-rootstock combinations, to realize the property's potential for joining the international elite of limited production wine estates oriented exclusively to quality. As stewards of this singular place, we employ organic and Biodynamic® practices in our farming and winemaking, reinforcing the unique terroir in our wines, and ensuring the health of the soil and vines now and for the future. Our farming extends from vines to olive trees, fruits and vegetables for the table, and beekeeping. The olive oil and honey we produce further reflect the property's character and natural abundance. Through meticulous attention to detail in all factors influencing the ultimate quality of the wines, we strive to produce singular wines of place, of the Eisele Vineyard. Welcome to Araujo Estate.

The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard had just been bottled when I tasted it. If it was displaying any post-bottling blues, I fear to think how prodigious it might become. The wine boasts a saturated opaque purple color, gorgeous purity of blac... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

This wine builds intensity and depth, with a youthful, vibrant core of black cherry, currant and wild berry. Deftly balanced, with firm tannins and fine structure, the finish shows power and finesse, with a rich aftertaste and loads of tannins yet to... Wine Spectator.
