A cherished site in Calistoga. The Eisele vineyard would be on the short list if classification ever reached Napa Valley. Made for a very pleasant meal with Lamb Chops.

Absolutely perfect time to open. Power and elegance. Enough age to be approached without having the palate blown out.

I suppose it's a little oaky but it is delicious for all but the most sensitive.

This wine was our unanimous winner in our cult Cali blind tasting held back in 2012 against some big hitters, Dominus, Shrader, Shafer Hillside etc. Med bodied in an opulent style with good balance & length showing notes of blackberry, creme de cassis, forest floor, graphite, licorice & violet.
