* 2010 Araujo Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon
Araujo Estate Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA 2010
Araujo’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is a picture perfect example of the year. Vibrant, precise and beautifully chiseled, the 2010 boasts serious depth and concentration. The aromas and flavors are incredibly vivid in this textured, dazzling Cabernet Sauvignon. Hints of dark blue and black fruit, mocha, espresso and grilled herbs flesh out on the huge finish. Today the 2010 is unusually open, but it is almost certain to shut down in bottle over the next 6-12 months. The 2010 is a super-classic Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon from Araujo. (AG)
A unique nose of hot earth, stones and river bed with iodine, ink and currants. Full body with a fabulous depth of fruit: blueberry, blackberry and minerals. It's tannic but balanced and chewy. This needs at least five to six years of age but it is already a mesmerizing experience. Biodynamically grown grapes. (JS)

In the vineyard, we do everything within our power to produce the finest fruit each growing season. In the cellar,
our winemaking is precise and stripped of pretension, our approach purposeful, uncompromising, natural, and honest. We respect what each vintage gives us, and the authenticity of the story that each growing season tells.
