Araujo Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

With its rich ruby color, this supple and elegant wine exudes dark notes of black cherry, black currant, tobacco, coffee and cedar, and whispers a suggestion of violets and nutmeg. It fills the mouth with luscious fruit and warm silky tannins. Winemaker Francoise Peschon notes: this complex yet approachable wine is expressive, seamless, with layered flavors of rich concentrated fruit and sweet tannins that coat the palate. The finish lingers with nuances of mineral and earthy spices, promising years of aging potential.

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.

A supple, harmonious, well-crafted effort, with rich yet subtle earthy currant, tobacco, toasty-cedary oak and spicy anise notes. Very complete and focused, with fine-grained tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2009. 2,180 cases made. –JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1998 Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard 750ml
