Araujo Eisele Vineyard Napa Valley Napa Cabernet Continued 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is a 1,700 case blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot. This vintage produced lighter wines, resulting in a Bordeaux-like example of this cuvee. After 22 months in oak, this textured, perfumed Cabernet offers up aromas of black currants, earth, and lilacs (reminiscent of Chateau Margaux). It possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as medium body, a good texture, a slight austerity, but brilliant purity and balance. A lighter-weight effort by Araujos standards, it is extremely well-balanced and approachable. Drink it over the next 10-12 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.
