Araujo Estate

Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

From magnum.

1 hour decant (some fine/cloudy sediment). A bewitching inky purplish garnet color with a touch of bricking. On the nose: expressive nose of blue fruit, pencil lead, floral, little minty menthol, touch of stewed meat. Taste: BOOM! a silky mouthfeel....creamy, smooth, rich, full body wine with blackberry, crushed stone, cedar, pepper, licorice, and a minerally blueberry loonngg finish. YUM! Gonna be a great 4th of July evening!

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Bart & Daphne Araujo sold out but have now started Wheeler Farms. An outstanding wine and a great tasting experience at their winery. Not Araujo yet but this is a big lush Cabernet that will continue to evolve. 🍷🍷🍷🍷 β€” a year ago

Pickett Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvginon 2014

An American Can classic. Nicely done. Deep purple colour. Hints of chocolate and red berries and currants on the nose nice chocolate flavours and and dark fruit. Well balance - tannins well balanced but quite present - will last another 5 years plus a baby Araujo β€” a year ago

Vieilles Vignes Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Solid 9.5. Did not match up to the Maybach/Abreu/SQN last night but still excellent. Much lighter on the palate even less than than an Aubert Pinot, great aromatics, classic Cab flavors but not the rich, dark, deep flavors of last night. β€” a month ago
