Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Eisele Vineyard 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot made from extremely low yields, it boasts superb intensity, flavor, elegance, and nobility in addition to a marvelously complex nose of minerals, licorice, cedar, creme de cassis, vanilla, and spice. Exceptionally rich, nuanced, and precise, it is a magnificent expression of Cabernet Sauvignon that offers the elegance of a Bordeaux with the power and potency of Napa Valley Cabernet. A tour de force, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for up to two decades. 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard Tasting Notes Produced by a fine vintage, distinctive vineyard terroir and painstaking selection in the vineyard, winery and blending sessions, this exceptionally dense and highly complex wine exudes opulent aromas of black currant, crushed violets, nutmeg and clove. On the palate, rich flavors of crème de cassis, black fruits, roasted chestnuts and dark chocolate are nuanced with mineral, tobacco and anise notes in the lingering finish.This noble wine displays its great pedigree and authenticity. It is whole and complete; its power and elegance are a perfect expression of the Eisele Vineyard.

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.

Firm, rich and concentrated, with ample tannins wrapped around a core of earth, currant and black cherry fruit. With excellent balance and depth, it serves up lots of rich, complex flavors without being heavy, offering a floral, perfumed currant edge... Wine Spectator.
