This is just about the best Cab I have ever had. I was lucky enough to stumble across this properly kept bottle at a charity auction for the UNC Childrens' Hospital. The nose comes right at you and says, "This is a cab with depth and subtlety." It is being enjoyed with a couple of lovely strip steaks. If you can get a bottle of this, go for it. It's really grand.

2003 - Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence. dark purple. perfume of cassis and chocolate. full bady, sweet tannin, a most wonderful velvety texture. 1997 Araujo trump 1996 Lafite. We let the sommelier took away 1996 Lafite but drank 1997 Araujo pass mid night. Life is wonderful.

Vintage: 2006 11/24/2010

Smooth, ripe and fleshy, this full-bodied red shows supple black cherry, plum and wild berry framed by a layer of toasty, mocha-laced oak. Elegant, stylish and understated, this gains complexity and depth on the finish, with hints of mineral and grap... Wine Spectator.

Vintage: 2006 11/03/2011

Full ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry, mocha, coffee and nutty oak, plus strong soil tones of spice, tobacco and iron. Wonderfully ripe and full but with a sappy menthol lift to the flavors of currant, minerals, mocha, tobacco and game. ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard (sadly, only 1,200 cases) is a stunner.

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard (1,600 cases made from 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, but winemaker Francois Peschon was quick to say they might tweak the blend as it evolves) is higher in alcohol than the 2002 or 2001, but i...

Winemaker's Notes:

"A firm, rustic red, tight and dense, with extracted tannins wrapped around a core of dark berry, currant, cedar and crushed rock. Best from 2014 through 2028...92" WS 11/12 "Dark red-ruby. Musky, deep nose offers crushed blackberry, cassis, graphite and coffee. Wonderfully sweet and rich, displaying an uncanny combination of textural thickness and verve. Strong crushed rock minerality gives this beauty an extremely youthful quality. The very long, palate-staining finish features big but suave tannins and outstanding harmoniousness. The pH of 3.73 is "not too high" for this consistently superb wine, says winemaker Nigel Kinsman...95" IWC 05/12 "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is one of the great wines of the vintage. It brings together gorgeous aromatics, juicy, expressive red fruit and silky tannins. Now seemingly past a period of closure post-bottling, the 2009 looks like a wine that will drink well pretty much throughout its entire life. The 2009 is a totally sexy Cabernet endowed with stunning depth and a rich, enveloping personality. This is pure Araujo and pure Eisele...97" WA 12/12 "This is just one component of the final blend. It is a vineyard that was planted in 1964. It is block 3, and it was always i the Eisele Vineyards and it went into the 1971 Ridge and 1974 Conn Creek. Joe used to call it gold. This is full bodied and rich with a beautiful sea shell and olive character. Very fine on the palate with chewy tannins. Complex and beautiful, with loads going on...93" JS 02/11
