My 3rd place wine/ Groups 4th place wine This came off as a more Bordelaise styled wine with gentle vanilla, cocoa, and spice tones wrapped around the lovely, pure fresh fruit on the nose. In the mouth this was velvety with a rich, earthy layered quality and a ripe, almost roasted fruit note. There were classic minty/eucalyptus tones on the long finish and while this was a touch obvious it really screamed Napa Valley Cabernet. 93pts

Tight at first, after an hour it opened up. This is a very austere wine. Not a blockbuster, not over extracted and dense. It is lighter bodied, refrained, and elegant rather than explosive. Complex tastes of spice, leather, forrest floor...but you ahd to hunt and think aobut it. Not overt

...Crystallized black cherry, violet and crushed dark berries on the nose, along with a faint dusty, leathery quality. Lush, tactile and seamless, with wonderful sweetness of fruit for the vintage. Already shows lively cassis and redcurrant fruit in ... Stephen Tanzer. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1995 Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard 750ml

The 2005 Syrah Eisele Vineyard exhibits wonderfully sweet blackberry fruit with some hints of camphor, perfume, and spice. The wine is medium to full-bodied, beautifully elegant, pure, and again stunningly rich. It should drink well now and over the ... Robert Parker.

Winemaker's Notes:

It is close to perfection. The wine combines extraordinary power and richness with remarkable complexity and finesse. The saturated purple/black color is followed by aromas of sweet vanillin intermixed with riveting scents of black currants, minerals, exotic spices, coffee, and toast. There is nothing garish about this subtle yet powerful giant of a wine. A Napa Valley classic, it is full-bodied and extremely rich, yet retains its sense of balance and symmetry.
