2006 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon

2006 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon

James Suckling 96pts: "A complex nose of smoke, grilled meats, dark fruits, asphalt, and lead pencil. Full bodied, with super fine tannins, fresh acidity and a long complex and fruity finish. This is all about complexity and finesse."


IWC 95pts: "Full ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry, mocha, coffee and nutty oak, plus strong soil tones of spice, tobacco and iron. Wonderfully ripe and full but with a sappy menthol lift to the flavors of currant, minerals, mocha, tobacco and game. There's something Graves-like to this compellingly sweet wine. Compared to the Altagracia, the estate's flagship bottling has more of everything, including class. A worthy successor to the superlative 2005. (ST)"


Wine Advocate 92pts: "The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is a surprisingly soft, round, delicious wine that, while quite backward and tannic last year, now seems to be up-front, forward, and easy to drink. Much lighter than I remember, with less color saturation, the wine has a dark plum/ruby color and an attractive nose of red currants, cherries, and black currants, with some loamy soil notes and hints of licorice. It is mid-weight, medium-bodied, and ideal for drinking now and over the next 12-14 years. (RP)"

Winemaker's Notes: "The tiny berries characteristic of the vintage here gave us an intense wine of remarkable depth and intensity, with loads of full, round tannins and mouth-coating flavor, but with delicacy in the dusty potpourri nose and the long graphite finish. The wine is earth-driven, rich and vibrant"
