Eisele Vineyard Syrah 1996

Cellared well this was really fun to open. Maybe because of the vintage this is a restrained Cabernet. Light oak with black cherry with a mocha finish. — a month ago

Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

1.5 hour decant(lots of chunky sediment). A medium dark murky ruby red color. On the nose: YUM... aged perfume with blackberry, eucalyptus, cinnamon, toasty oak all jump from the glass!! Taste: red fruit, caramel, currants, spice..a soft, lush wine with a cedar/tar DRY (eehhh)decently long finish. In its drinking window and could go another 4 years. — 2 months ago

Word. This is one of my favorite vintages from them. Have you had their Pickett? Best $50 cab I’ve ever had.

3rd label down from Alta... give it a shot. Best Napa Cab in that style for that $$ IMO.

9.2

Wheeler Farms was designed and built after Bart & Daphne Araujo sold Araujo to Chateau Latour. They spared no expense building their facilities and make 11 other labels there, including TOR.

This 17 Rosé is their first vintage and is a red blend.

Soft beautiful fruits, lean, watermelon, cherries, raspberries strawberries, peach, light beautiful minerality & spring flowers and pink roses. Beautiful acidity & finish. Nicely done.

Photos of, the small bites prepared for our tasting, their awesome gardens and their reception and tasting room.
