“This is majestic new Cabernet boasts luscious dark fruit flavors, hints of Toblerone and a velvety rich texture. Luxurious notes of black cherry, plum, currant, espresso, dried savory herbs and cocoa lead to an expansive finish that delights the palate now and promises supreme pleasure for a decade.  Enjoy now (decanting recommended prior to 2022) through 2029.” - California Wine Advisors

“Eisele Vineyard has managed to produce a very impressive pair of 2017 reds {Cabernet} that demonstrate sensitive crafting and remarkable poise... the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Altagracia leaps from the glass, offering bold, expressive notes of blackberry pie, Black Forest cake and warm cassis with hints of garrigue, mossy tree bark, dusty soil and black pepper plus a fragrant waft of cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers a great core of rich, spicy black fruit preserves, framed with firm, chewy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing earthy.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
