Araujo Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Premier 1993

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1993 vintage is a pure, classic expression of the Eisele Vineyard aromas and flavors of black cherry, cassis, chocolate, mineral and spice, complemented by toasty sweet vanilla and a clear cedar note. Surprisingly elegant and polished, the wine's intense richness is balanced by exceptionally fine and silky tannins, delivering a lingering full-bodied finish. Consulting winemaker Tony Soter notes: In its youth, this wine has always displayed remarkable grace and harmony. Its powerful fruit and supple tannins are superbly balanced, expressing great finesse and promising ageability well into the next century.

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.

Even more stunning than the 1992, the 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard may eclipse the great 1991. It offers a huge nose of black-cherries, blackcurrants, minerals, and vanillin, a stunning display of super-concentrated fruit, full body, and ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
