Araujo Napa Valley Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon Qty.available-3 2006
This wine shows rich aromas of ripe black cherries and currants lifted by mineral notes of graphite dust, floral tones of lavender and violets, and warm notes of brioche, leather, cocoa nib and tar. In the mouth, intense flavors of ripe fruit are structured by beautifully integrated but massive tannins tightly wound around a core of deep sweetness, displaying a brooding palate driven by earthiness. The persistent finish lingers with minerality and sweet tannins. Notes winemaker FranÁoise Peschon: The tiny berries characteristic of the vintage here gave us an intense wine of remarkable depth and intensity, with loads of full, round tannins and mouth-coating flavor, but with delicacy in the dusty potpourri nose and the long graphite finish. The wine is earth-driven, rich and vibrant.

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is a surprisingly soft round delicious wine that while quite backward and tannic last year now seems to be up-front forward and easy to drink. Much lighter than I remember with less color saturation the wine has a dark plum/ruby color and an attractive nose of red currants cherries and black currants with some loamy soil notes and hints of licorice. It is mid-weight medium-bodied and ideal for drinking now and over the next 12-14 years. Ro

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. There s something Graves-like to this compellingly sweet wine. Compared to the Altagracia the estate s flagship bottling has more of everything including class. A worthy successor to the superlative 2005. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
