“After judging hundreds of new Napa Cabernets, I rank this Altagracia bottling the #1 finest 2016 vintage release under $150!” Hal Oates | Porthos Founder and President

“This is a monumental effort that displays concentrated dark fruit flavors, truffle, tobacco, and graphite.  Intense and rich on the palate, luxurious velvet tannins give way to notes of black cherry, plum, espresso, dried savory herbs and cocoa.  Exceedingly complex and expensive tasting for the price-point, the 2016 Altagracia showcases the Eisele terroir in an an awe-inspiring vintage. Enjoy now (decanting recommended prior to 2021) through 2027.” - California Wine Advisors

Savvy connoisseurs know that the Eisele Vineyard is one of Napa’s most storied and coveted plots of land. The source for classic vintages of Ridge and Joseph Phelps in the ’70’s, it later became the home of the ‘Cult’ classic Araujo Eisele Estate. Eisele’s companion label called “Altagracia” is sourced from the same historic Eisele vineyard, from the same “Perfect 100” vintage. This fan favorite sells out every year, and with the accolades of the vintage it will sell out swiftly.
