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 Read more »

    My 3rd place wine/ Groups 4th place wineThis 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.
