“Araujo Eisele Estate 2010 has evolved into a truly ravishing wine, benefiting from almost a decade 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 have ever judged. Enjoy now through 2024!” – California Wine Advisors (2018)

“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color. Its nose begins a little reserved, slowly revealing a quiet intensity of freshly crushed blackberries, chocolate-covered cherries, cassis and aniseed with compelling nuances of black tea, cigar box, truffles and charcuterie, plus, with coaxing, gentle wafts of red roses and crushed rocks emerge. The medium to full-bodied palate is simply arresting, offering a a myriad floral and earth sparks amidst a black fruit core and with seamless, firm, very fine-grained tannins. Well-knit freshness brings forth layer after layer of delicate nuances on the very long, mineral-laced finish. The team at Eisele, led by Frédéric Engerer (of Chateau Latour) and beautifully orchestrated by winemaker Hélène Mingot, have knocked it out of the park this vintage with this singular expression that both embraces the site's heritage and reveals parts unknown.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
