“Perfect” 100 Points
“The Araujo Eisele 2010 has become a truly ravishing wine, benefiting immensely from a few years of cellar time. Built like a thoroughbred, this Cabernet blend is a remarkable experience now and will continue to delight for another decade. Intense notes of voluptuous dark fruit are deftly balanced by plush tannins and perfectly integrated oak. The majestic finish lasts a full minute now with tantalizing notes of espresso, truffles, and exotic herbs. This is one of the finest Napa reds we’ve sampled!” – California Wine Advisors (November, 2017) 

Robert Parker Tasting Notes(2012)
Araujo’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is a picture perfect example of the year. Vibrant, precise and beautifully chiseled, the 2010 boasts serious depth and concentration. The aromas and flavors are incredibly vivid in this textured, dazzling Cabernet Sauvignon. Hints of dark blue and black fruit, mocha, espresso and grilled herbs flesh out on the huge finish. Today the 2010 is unusually open, but it is almost certain to shut down in bottle over the next 6-12 months. The 2010 is a super-classic Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon from Araujo. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035. I won’t be surprised if one day 2010 is considered one of the great all-time vintages at this historic property. Wine Advocate #204
