Araujo Estate

Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

The 35 acre Eisele Vineyard has an interesting history, named after its original owners. Originally planted in the 19th Century, the Vineyard became recognised as a special terroir when Ridge and then Joseph Phelps purchased grapes to craft rich complex wines. In 1990 Bart and Daphne Araujo purchased the Vineyard located southeast of Calistoga st the foot of the Palisades Mountains. The wine is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new French Oak barrels for 22 months. The wine is very dark crimson - amazing for its age. Aromas of Cassis Blackberry with touch of mint which became more apparent with time in Decanter. On the palate Rich profound and concentrated but held in balance finishing with silky supple Tannins. The oak has melded seamlessly. I see from the label they have used Bordeaux based Oenologist Michel Rolland who consults to wineries around the world. Not unlike Quilceda Creek in my limited USA experience. A joy to drink with 5 to 8 more years of great drinking left in it. — 3 years ago

Gewürztraminer Apple

Gewurztraminer Apple Cider at Left Foot Charley's. Confusing. Is it a wine or cider? Made with Gewurztraminer wine skins it definately is unique — 2 years ago

Seventh Hill Farm Riesling 2017

A solid, dry riesling from Michigan. Really opens up slightly below room temperature. A nice zingy tingle of acid with stone and minerality. Great for a hot, summer day. — 9 months ago

Hundred Suns

Breaker Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Its the Breaker Vineyard, JS 95
Love the description from the winery so I had to try one ☝️
I think I might get a couple more to age for a few years.

Winemaker's Notes: " The Breaker Vineyard is where we live. Planted in 1972 on its own roots, it occupies a windswept rocky hill on the northern tip of the Eola-Amity Hills. The original cuttings came from Dick Erath and were farmed by Rich Zielinski for four decades. To the north the soils are predominantly Nekia, moderately deep silty clay soils on top of basalt bedrock. The southern portion is predominantly Gelderman soil series which has much thinner topsoils with rocks and cobbles strewn throughout the rows. This endangered beast will be one of only two vintages (2018 & 2019) to come off this old vineyard before we begin replanting. This vintage is very limited and entirely unique. Built to go the distance, we know our children will be enjoying these wines for many years to come. It's just that special. Winemaking Yielding just over one ton per acre, this old vineyard was harvested on the 28th of September. One portion was destemmed into a small, open- top fermenter. The second portion was placed 100% whole bunch in a 500-liter amphora and left untouched for 19 days. The last portion was left 100% whole bunch and foot crushed only. All fermented with native yeast. This wine is a dramatic landscape of rich blue fruits, tense acidity buoyed by sweet tannins, and mouth filling richness. Bottled unfined and unfiltered."

Endangered seems to be a bold choice of adjective.

Eden Hill Vines Blaufränkisch 2016

Juicy, bright, grape soda and black pepper. No oak from what I can tell. Such a quaffer and crowd pleaser. — 3 years ago
