“The Araujo Eisele 2012 has become an awe-inspiring thriller following a few years of deep time in the winery’s private library. Built like a thoroughbred, this Cabernet blend offers a distinguished experience now and will continue to dazzle throughout this decade. The cashmere-like texture introduces notes of voluptuous dark fruit, baking spices, and hints of espresso deftly balanced by silky tannins and perfectly integrated oak. The majestic finish lasts a full minute now with sultry notes of black truffles, and exotic herbs. This is one of the most handsomely aged Napa reds we’ve sampled in years and should continue to provide thrills through 2030!” - California Wine Advisors
